ST JOSEPH’S College upcoming production Echuca-Moama: The Great Divide starts next week.
One bridge, two towns and three mayors — what could possibly go wrong?
‘‘Well a lot can,’’ performing arts leader Aidan McLindon said.
‘‘The story takes the audience on a journey through the life and times of our two towns.
‘‘And the production was a fun way to include some of the local identities around now, such as Father Tink and councillor Annie Vickers, with their permission of course.’’
When the towns’ mayors go off to seek funding for the bridge to be built, both townships descend into chaos.
Mr McLindon said it was also an opportunity to have some fun.
‘‘It is a light-hearted tale which gets a lot of the students playing roles which they can really make their own,’’ he said.
‘‘A year 10 student, Hamish Thomson, is composing all the music as well.
‘‘They have been great and really got on board with the characters and working the storyline out,’’ he said.
‘‘We have nine lead roles and a cast of around 40.’’
The production is open to the public for three shows only at the school hall.
Thursday, August 31, at 7.30pm; Friday, September 1, at 7.30pm; and Saturday, September 2, at 1pm.
