Mandurah Coastal Times - - REVUE ENTERTAINMENT -

STAKEHILL res­i­dent and Year 11 Man­durah Bap­tist Col­lege stu­dent Ash­ley Gar­ner is get­ting ready to rock in a high-en­ergy mu­si­cal fea­tur­ing a clas­sic story of ri­valry and power.

Camp Rock: The Mu­si­cal opens with Mitchie and her friends ar­riv­ing at Camp Rock, ready to spend an­other sum­mer jam­ming and hav­ing the time of their lives.

But the new, flashy Camp Star across the lake threat­ens Camp Rock’s very ex­is­tence and Mitchie ral­lies her fel­low Camp Rock­ers for the ul­ti­mate show­down.

Six­teen-year-old Ash­ley plays Shane Gray, a rock’n’roll star and part of a band called Con­nect 3 with his two broth­ers.

First step­ping up to the stage in 2011, Ash­ley has ap­peared in Wind in the Wil­lows, Annie, The Wardrobe, 13, Bugsy Malone and Les Mis­er­ables.

He twice won his age cat­e­gory in the Stars of To­mor­row com­pe­ti­tion for act­ing and mu­si­cal the­atre and his singing prow­ess saw him make it to the fi­nals of Rock­ing­ham’s Fes­ti­val of New Tal­ent three years run­ning and recog­ni­tion at the an­nual Fin­ley Awards.

Direc­tor Kather­ine Freind said Camp Rock was a fun show with great mu­sic and fea­tured a large en­sem­ble cast.

Dis­ney’s Camp Rock: The Mu­si­cal plays at Koor­liny Arts Cen­tre, Kwinana on March 17 and 18 with mati­nees on March 18 and 19.
