Crack Up Sis­ters to pro­mote lo­cal tal­ent

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE Crack Up Sis­ters will spear­head a coun­cil­spon­sored va­ri­ety tour around the North Bur­nett re­gion this month.

The tour will com­mence in Mundubbera on Fri­day, Novem­ber 11 and con­tinue through Biggen­den, Eidsvold, Gayndah, Mt Perry and Monto.

As part of the coun­cil’s Norm­ing the Arts pro­gram, the Crack Up Sis­ters have paved the way for a resur­gence in lo­cal com­mu­nity per­for­mance arts.

The goal is to use en­ter­tain­ment to build com­mu­nity re­silience in the North Bur­nett.

To that end, the Sis­ters’ va­ri­ety tour will head­line var­i­ous acts and ex­hi­bi­tions put on by lo­cal tal­ent.

Coun­cil­lor Paul Lobegeier said the Crack Up Sis­ters were called on be­cause of the way they have suc­cess­fully in­te­grated in all of the ma­jor North Bur­nett com­mu­nity cen­tres.

“I’ve been to many of the events and ses­sions th­ese girls have had in our re­gion and I am my­self in­spired by the life-chang­ing ef­fect this pro­ject has had on so many lives,” Cr Lobegeier said.

“The sis­ters have spent hours with nurs­ing homes and hos­pi­tal staff teach­ing them the pro­fes­sional skills to help their clients re­ha­bil­i­tate and im­prove their phys­i­cal and men­tal well­be­ing, and help­ing im­prove their over­all qual­ity of life.”

Those who are in­ter­ested in get­ting in­volved with the ini­tia­tive can con­tact the coun­cil com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment team on 1300 696 272.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est forms are avail­able on the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil web­site and at lo­cal cus­tomer ser­vice cen­tres.

The dead­line for com­mu­nity sub­mis­sions to the pro­gram is Mon­day, Novem­ber 7.
