Rouse Hill Times - - NEWS - Lawrence Machado

CHIL­DREN en­joyed the sheer ex­cite­ment of be­ing an ac­tor, singer and dancer dur­ing the in­ter­ac­tive work­shops in­spired by the Matilda Ex­trav­a­ganza at the Rouse Hill Town Cen­tre last week.

StarTime’s four-day work­shop, in­spired by the award win­ning mu­si­cal, had the chil­dren singing well-known hits such as When I Grow Up and Naughty.

The work­shop fea­tured pro­fes­sional-style chore­og­ra­phy and scenes from the show, where par­tic­i­pants were ex­posed to char­ac­ter work, stage­craft, en­sem­ble and tricks of the trade.

This week’s ac­tiv­i­ties at the cen­tre in­clude the Science Spec­tac­u­lar with Pro­fes­sor Din­gle­splodge from 11.30am and the Minecraft Masters from 2pm.

The an­nual Rouse Hill Billy Cart Derby takes to Main St on Satur­day from 10am to 2pm.

In the lead-up to the derby is a billy cart dec­o­ra­tion work­shop, 10am to 2pm to­day.

Ex­plore the Won­der­land Maze in Mar­ket Square un­til Sun­day.
