COMEDY BREAKS LANGUAGE BARRIER
BRINGING comedy to children of Kuala Lumpur was an amazing experience for Carramar’s Ros Boyer.
The Joondalup Entertainers Theatre School (JETS) principal was invited to organise children’s comedy workshops while attending the Kuala Lumpur International Comedy Festival last month.
“I was fortunate enough to teach children and make some fantastic friendships,” she said. “Meeting the international comedians over the eight days of the festival was another fantastic highlight, and sharing experiences and jokes coupled with laughter every single day was the most amazing feeling.”
More than 60 students in age groups of six to eight and nine to 12 attended the four workshops over two days.
“I even got the parents to join in at the end during the showcase part of the workshops,” she said. “There is not much in the way of these sorts of classes or workshops in Kuala Lumpur and working closely with Chris Ng, who has over 30 years experience and a dedication to children’s theatre, we were able to have successful workshops.”
Boyer has run JETS for almost 12 years, operating out of Arena Joondalup.
The school offers acting, singing and hiphop classes for children aged six and over through to adults. JETS principal Ros Boyer with students Holly Bennett-Bremner (8),Lucy Malloy (8), Maya Ross (7) and Aleesha Butt (7). Kennealey
