Ararat school mu­si­cal

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Months of re­hearsals will cul­mi­nate in an Ararat Primary School mu­si­cal of ‘in­ter­ga­lac­tic pro­por­tions’ to­mor­row and Fri­day night at 7pm.

Ararat Primary School 800 grade five and six stu­dents will per­form an orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion, ‘Sch­moz­zle’, at Ararat Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre.

Direc­tors and teach­ers David Collins and Matt Had­dow said the mu­si­cal, telling the story of two young ad­ven­tur­ers as they rise up against an ‘evil em­peror’, in­volved all of the school’s grade five and six stu­dents.

They said it was fan­tas­tic to see chil­dren de­velop skills, tal­ent and con­fi­dence as they pro­gressed through the process of au­di­tion­ing and ap­ply­ing for roles.

“See­ing stu­dents in­crease in con­fi­dence has been amaz­ing,” Mr Had­dow said.

“Im­prove­ments in act­ing, voice pro­jec­tion and work­ing as a team have been the stand outs.

“All five and six stu­dents are in­volved in var­i­ous ways, from be­ing a primary cast mem­ber and at­tend­ing re­hearsals both in and out of school, to a be­hind-the-scenes role in­volv­ing cre­ation of props, ad­ver­tis­ing, light­ing and chore­og­ra­phy.”

Mr Collins said peo­ple could book a ticket on­line at www.try­book­­qfe.

Adult tick­ets cost $15, chil­dren aged two to 18 years $5, and chil­dren un­der age two can at­tend free of charge.
