Mulkadee talent set to shine on stage
THE spotlight is on the next generation of Townsville’s singers, dancers and performers who are preparing to take centre stage for the biggest and best 10th anniversary Mulkadee experience.
The annual event for Townsville Diocese Catholic school students from Years 5 to 12 is a unique learning opportunity for students and teachers who are interested in developing their skills in the arts.
The program offers students the opportunity to workshop with experienced professionals, including NIDA and the Sydney Dance Company, in various arts including choral, band, strings, dance, drama and guitar, before a final grand performance.
Townsville Catholic Education’s Christian Gordon said Mulkadee provided a platform for young people in Townsville to inspire them to go on and engage in places like the local choral society and develop a love of the arts.
“We’ve got students who have come from us before going on to Brisbane to the Conservatorium of Music or lead roles,” Mr Gordon said.
“We have couple of students doing the local production of Mary Poppins, so it really is a big thing for Catholic education in Townsville.”
Mulkadee 2015 will run until Friday at the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre before a final performance at 7.30pm.
Tickets for adults are $ 25 or $ 15 for children and concession. A family ticket for two adults and two children is $ 60.
