Classic musical comedy on stage
Sascha Venske-Parker, Jordan Piggott and Louise Miolin rehearse a scene from St Trinian’s, the Manjimup Repertory Club’s upcoming production.

Young actors are getting their chance to shine in the spotlight in the Manjimup Repertory Club’s latest production.

A cast of promising performers will tread the boards in St Trinian’s — A Play With Songs by David Barrett.

The light-hearted musical feast will run at the Repertory Club from Friday August 3 to Sunday August 5.

Club secretary Maree Rooney promised a fun show for audiences of all ages.

‘‘We’ve got 21 school girls aged between 10 and 17 performing, along with a few boys like Jordan Piggott who plays the school principal,’’ Ms Rooney said.

‘‘The past three months of rehearsals have been a lot of fun; the challenge has been harnessing all of their enthusiasm.’’

Ms Rooney said the production had a strong anti-bullying theme, which was a positive element of the story.

‘‘It has at its core a good lesson for other children to take away with them, as well as being fun and entertaining,’’ she said.

‘‘It’s a different kind of show for us to take on and it’s the third production Andrea Miolin, Harriet Bartlett and I have directed together, along with help from the rest of the crew of course.’’

St Trinian’s — A Play With Songs will show at the Manjimup Repertory Club from 8pm on August 3-5.

Matinee performances will take place at 2pm on the Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets are available from Manjimup Visitor Centre.

‘‘Normally shows run over two weekends but not this time,’’ Ms Rooney said.

‘‘You won’t get a second chance to see it so get in early to avoid disappointment.’’
