School pro­duc­tion all go

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

A brave pi­rate, a snooty fox, an ex­citable dog, a sleepy lion, a kind washer-woman and an iPad ‘‘ freak’’ are the main char­ac­ters in St Joseph’s Catholic School’s lat­est pro­duc­tion, ‘‘ The Magic Tree Book’’. Th­ese char­ac­ters will be recog­nised from well­known NZ sto­ries by au­thors Joy Cow­ley, Gavin Bishop, Mar­garet Mahy and Lyn­ley Dodd.

The story, writ­ten by Mrs Jemma Van Eijk, is about the im­por­tance of keep­ing a town li­brary open even though chil­dren are al­ways play­ing on their iPads rather than read­ing books.

All of the stu­dents are in­volved in the show and have been work­ing hard danc­ing, singing as well as paint­ing props.

Three ex­cit­ing shows are be­ing held at St Joseph’s School hall start­ing Mon­day, Septem­ber 15 un­til Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 17 at 7pm.

Tick­ets are $10 for adults, pri­mary/ in­ter­me­di­ate stu­dents $5 and pre-school­ers are free.

You can pick them up from the school of­fice or at the door.

It’s go­ing to be an amaz­ing show – we hope you will come

along to see!
