Oliver sure to de­light

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

RE­HEARSALS are un­der­way for Proser­pine State High School’s mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion of Oliver. Direc­tor Jenny Napier said this year’s pro­duc­tion will also be a way to wel­come Year 7s to the school. “Nor­mally I only do Year 9 to 12 in pro­duc­tions, but this time I’m hav­ing Year 7 to 12,” she said. Re­hearsals are al­ready well un­der way for the main show in early May, hav­ing started on the sec­ond day of school. Stu­dents are giv­ing up lunch hours, af­ter-school hours, and even week­ends to make sure the mu­si­cal is a smash hit. “We’re run­ning about 12 hours of re­hearsals a week,” Mrs Napier said. The show won’t be a half mea­sure, with chore­og­ra­phers, an artist, pro­fes­sional men­tor mu­si­cians and a for­mer stu­dent, now a sound and light­ing en­gi­neer. “It’s the favourite Oliver Twist,” said direc­tor Jenny Napier. “It’s a com­mu­nity and ex­tended Proser­pine High School fam­ily pro­duc­tion,” she said.
