Drama stu­dents shine

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

STU­DENTS from a num­ber of schools have banded to­gether to en­ter­tain the City of Bel­mont with their per­for­mance At the Bus Stop.

Per­form­ing Arts teacher and spe­cial­ist pri­mary drama co-or­di­na­tor Brit­tany Lo­max or­gan­ised for stu­dents in and around the Bel­mont area to au­di­tion and take part in an ex­tra cur­ric­u­lar drama work­shop.

Now the stu­dents from dif­fer­ent schools meet ev­ery Thurs­day af­ter­noon af­ter school at the Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre at Bel­mont City Col­lege, re­hears­ing their scripted per­for­mance At the Bus Stop.

“The pro­duc­tion is a com­bined ef­fort of the stu­dents im­pro­vis­ing given sce­nar­ios and themes of weird and won­der­ful char­ac­ters at bus stops, and then I’ve in­te­grated those ideas into a full scripted pro­duc­tion,” Ms Lo­max said.

The pro­duc­tion re­ceived funds from the City of Bel­mont through a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing with the Col­lege.

Fund­ing pro­vided the stu- dents with the op­por­tu­nity to per­form as well as pro­fes­sion­ally de­signed sets and cos­tumes.

Ms Lo­max said the pro­gram helped to fa­cil­i­tate a smooth tran­si­tion for Year 6 stu­dents en­ter­ing Year 7.

“It’s also pro­vid­ing a safe and cre­ative en­vi­ron­ment for stu­dents in­ter­ested in per­form­ing arts and a won­der­ful tool to in­te­grate new vo­cab­u­lary and ter­mi­nol­ogy that stu­dents would utilise in sec­ondary school,” she said.
