Public Performance

It was Hillcrest Primary School’s Fete and the dark clouds and thunderstorms were proving the weatherman correct. Nevertheless, we were committed and the kids from the Dianella studio turned up as promised, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, eager to put on a show for a live audience. Kitted up in new costumes specially made for the day, the rains held and the sun’s rays peeked through as everyone took up positions for the first section of the performance .  All went smoothly, with everyone remembering their lines from last term and holding their tone and pitch. despite the urge to shout above the background noise.

Then it was on to the play – Ulysses and the Sirens. With props, costumes and Mother Nature’s contribution of gusty winds! It would have been nice to have microphones suspended at choice locations within the gazebo, but under the circumstances the children’s voice projection, although challenged, was very good.

In the end, we all had a ball, the audience seemed to appreciate the efforts and performance and flyers were handed out to parents and friends around the school. Well done, kids! You were all fabulous!
