Kids love dis­play of Will-power

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

TO BE or not to be?

That was just one of the ques­tions asked when the Bell Shake­speare Com­pany vis­ited Gir­garre Pri­mary School to per­form the Won­der­ful World of Will.

Set in El­iz­a­bethan Eng­land in 1599, the whirl­wind play fol­lowed a fun, fic­tional story of Wil­liam Shake­speare, Queen Elizabeth I and a young stu­dent from our world.

In­ter­wo­ven with Shake­speare’s ro­mances, tragedies, his­to­ries and come­dies, there was some­thing for ev­ery­one on the day.

“It was an amaz­ing in­tro­duc­tion to Shake­speare for the kids,” Gir­garre teacher Fiona Smith said.

Stu­dents from Mer­rigum, Lan­caster and Stan­hope pri­mary schools also at­tended.

“They loved it – it was hu­mor­ous and en­gag­ing with a bit of ac­tion for the boys as well,” Ms Smith said.

“We’re re­ally lucky to have had the Bell Shake­speare Com­pany per­form for us.”

Ms Smith hopes this per­for­mance will be the first of many more drama ac­tiv­i­ties at the school.

“I’d love to even­tu­ally have an ac­tor from the com­pany come out to visit and hold act­ing work­shops,” she said. so far, re­ally en­joyed the chal­lenge.”

And there isn’t much the team can’t tackle at their work­shop in Al­lan St.

They work on any­thing from mow­ers to trac­tors or they can visit you with on­site ser­vic­ing.

“We also do bat­ter­ies, mags and wheel align­ments,” Mr Johns said.

The town’s com­mu­nity spirit has made it easy for Mr Johns to feel right at home.

“I love the friendly at­mos­phere Kyabram has,” he said.

“Ev­ery­one looks after one an­other and it gives the town a great feel­ing. I’m extremely pleased to be a part of it.”

As part of Ky in July, Kyabram Tyre Ser­vice will be of­fer­ing 20 per cent off a se­lected range from July 1 to 7.
