Light­ing up the stage in Childers

Isis Town and Country - - News - By JODIE DIXON

WORK­ING Lights opened on Fri­day night for the start of the Childers Mul­ti­cul­tural Fes­ti­val.

Tracey Jack­son at­tended the show on Satur­day night and was de­lighted with the per­for­mances from the cast and crew.

“We saw the show last night at the Cul­tural Cen­tre. My lit­tle boy and I loved it. It was a great story with lots of funny mo­ments, the mu­sic was great and we bopped along in our seats to all the songs,” Mrs Jack­son said.

“It's fan­tas­tic to see some­thing of this cal­i­bre be­ing de­vel­oped and pro­duced in Childers.”

The chore­og­ra­phy, cos­tumes, hair and makeup were all very im­pres­sive.

“Well done to Tony and Gil­lyee for bring­ing this fan­tas­tic mu­si­cal to fruition right here in our lit­tle town,” Mrs Jack­son said.

Thrilled with the per­for­mance and im­pressed by the pro­duc­tion was Tr­ish Costello.

“All should be proud of your achieve­ments, par­tic­u­larly Tony and Gil­lyee Carey, cre­ators,” Mrs Costello said

The lead­ing lady, Laura Man­der­son, stole the show with her vo­cal tal­ents.

“What a won­der­ful show it was last night and there lit­er­ally was no bet­ter way for me to round off my six months in Childers,” Miss Man­der­son said.

“The feed­back I re­ceived re­ally touched me and I haven't felt hap­pi­ness like that for some time. So thank you for get­ting me back on track to pur­su­ing my dreams.”

The pro­duc­tion will be on show in Au­gust at the Bund­aberg Civic Cen­tre. For more de­tails con­tact them on Face­book, Pilot­light Pro­duc­tions.
