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 Riverine Herald - - GAME ON SUMMER -

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?”
