Mr Shoesmith saw the musical while on his honeymoon and fell in love with it.
Having held auditions in November of 2016, students from grades eight to 12 are performing in the cast, with the lead rolls being filled by students from grade 9 and up. But it is not only these young thespians who are getting involved. Year 12 student, Wade Walsh, is the Assistant Director. Wade is looking towards a future in the entertainment industry, wanting to direct film and theatre. Another year 12 student is taking charge, this time with the back stage crew. The crew, consisting of students, will be under the direction of Connie Brown.
Song and dance numbers, such as “When You’re an Addam” and “Full Disclosure” will showcase the talent and dedication of the students involved.
The musical will be presented three times, including Friday at 7.30pm, and Saturday at 1.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets, $15 for adults and $10 for students, are available from Chinchilla State High School.
