Stu­dents en­joy comic fan­tasy at St Cather­ine’s

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY KIDS -

STU­DENTS at St Cather­ine’s Catholic Col­lege were treated to a comic fan­tasy ad­ven­ture per­formed by theatre com­pany Zen Zen Zo Phys­i­cal Theatre at their school last Tues­day.

Pre­sented by Art­slink Queens­land, Mar­cus and the Manic Mu­sic Mak­ers fol­lowed the story of Mar­cus, a young as­pir­ing vi­o­lin­ist over­come with anx­i­ety about his up­com­ing Beethoven So­ci­ety au­di­tion.

Di­rec­tor Michael Futcher crafted the play with imag­i­na­tion and hu­mour, en­vi­sion­ing a heart-warm­ing story of over­com­ing fear and self­doubt to find ful­fil­ment and pas­sion.

“In this story we wanted to cre­ate a par­al­lel to that mo­ment when a child gives up on a hobby that they love,” Mr Futcher said.

“We wanted to show a po­ten­tial fu­ture where the child rises to the chal­lenge and finds new faith in their abil­i­ties.”

St Cather­ine’s Catholic Col­lege Year 7 teacher Peter Bates said it was a great pro­duc­tion that had the stu­dents laugh­ing and feel­ing in­spired.

MU­SIC FUN: St Cather­ine's Catholic Col­lege year 7 stu­dents An­thony Pendle­bury, Chloe Horne-Lisle and Eme­nie Jensen en­joyed the vi­brant comic per­for­mance of Mar­cus and the Manic Mu­sic Mak­ers per­formed by Zen Zen Zo Phys­i­cal Theatre at their school last Tues­day.
