Keen kids set to perform
IT’S a small school, but Booyal State School students have big ambitions.
And the students are about to fulfil their dreams as they take to the stage for the first time.
They have been busy preparing songs for the public launch of Seussical the musical, which will be staged in Childers and Gin Gin.
To kick off the production, students will make a special appearance at the Childers Show on Sunday to perform the popular musical with students from other local schools.
Director David Horner believes this is the first time small rural schools have been offered the opportunity to stage their own show.
Schools will be supported by the Isis Community Theatre who will provide a core chorus and main characters.
Mr Horner said the aim was to provide an experience that was not usually made available to rural students.
The project would not have been possible without the support from a Regional Arts Development Fund, which has allowed the Childers Choral Society and Isis Community Theatre to provide workshops with professional artists.
Booyal principal Dawn Dolinski said the production would provide students with experiences in visual arts as well as building confidence with drama, dance and singing.
Mrs Dolinski said students were excited to be involved in the musical, which has not been made available to students of such a small school before.
