So­ci­ety buys mo­bile stage

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

THE Childers Cho­ral So­ci­ety re­ceived a fi­nan­cial boost to the tune of more than $27,000 to help with their pro­duc­tion Seussi­cal.

The funds are part of its share of more than $12.6 mil­lion in the lat­est round of the State Govern­ment’s com­mu­nity grants pro­gram.

Di­rec­tor David Horner wel­comed the funds, which he said helped to buy a por­ta­ble stage for a joint per­for­mance with Isis Com­mu­nity Theatre in­volv­ing nine schools across the district.

Mr Horner said the stage would al­low for a more pro­fes­sional pro­duc­tion.

“It solved a lot of lo­gis­ti­cal prob­lems,” he said.

“Now we have that fund­ing, it’s some­thing that can be used in the com­mu­nity as well.”

Mr Horner said the pro­duc­tion, to be staged dur­ing Novem­ber, was com­ing along well.

The grant fol­lows money the group re­ceived ear­lier this year from the Re­gional Arts De­vel­op­ment Fund.
