School to tell magic Murray River story This year’s show is about the Murray, and what could be more magical than performing it perched itself? ’ above the river
THE Port of Echuca Discovery Centre will welcome Carey Baptist Grammar School for its 2018 performing arts tour on Saturday.
At 10.30am, students will be performing in the Hopwood Gardens Rotunda and the day will finish on the Echuca wharf with a performance scheduled for 2pm.
Both performances are open to the public and can be viewed for free.
“It’s great we can host these types of events on the Echuca wharf. Not only will this benefit the school and their students, but it also provides some fantastic entertainment for those who come to watch,” Port of Echuca Discovery Centre ex- hibits and operations manager Mesh Thomson said.
The theme of the performances will be focused on the ‘river story’, and so the school chose the Echuca wharf as one of their locations.
Martin Arnold, the show’s producer, said the group looked forward to performing on the historic wharf.
“The atmosphere is very special, and it connects so well with the historical themes of our stories,” he said.
“Last time we performed a show about the history of riverboats, and as we performed we enjoyed the friendly ‘toot’ of passing paddlesteamers.
“This year’s show is about the Murray, and what could be more magical than performing it perched above the river itself?”
