ACTIV GOES WILD FOR PERFORMING
THE wilds of the African jungle will come to the stage thanks to performers from Activ.
Members of the Beaconsfield organisation’s People, Skills and Community group have been practising for the past year to bring the Fantasy Island production to life through song, dance, acting and percussion skills.
Active PS&C support officer Kim Parkin said the performers created the show and worked together to develop the story and perform it. “Through PS&C, each individual has the opportunity to make decisions, connect, learn and belong with their community and the Performing Arts program is a huge part of that,” she said.
“All our performers are working towards an ASDAN Certificate in Sound, Rhythm and Music.
“This production gives them the chance to learn all these skills in a practical, reallife environment and it’s fantastic to see the production come together and all their hard work pay off.”
Activ performer Julius Rode, who is playing a witch doctor, said he became nervous before the show but enjoyed being a part of it.
“I like being up there with my friends and having fun,” he said.
Fantasy Island will be at the North Lake Senior Campus on October 15.
