Two performances of school’s play today
The Jerilderie Public School production of Through the Looking Glass may be seen today at 10am (dress rehearsal), and the full production tonight at the Civic Hall at 7pm.
Everyone is welcome to go along to either or both performances, and support the young students who will no doubt shine once more on stage.
