Deb ball makes an entrance

WHAT better way to showcase Narranga Public School’s hall than to put on a colourful performance, complete with line dancers and jackaroos.

In a spectacular collaboration, the school is holding its first performance show in the hall, The Outback Debutante Ball. All proceeds are going towards the purchase of six interactive whiteboards.

The Outback Debutante Ball is a comedy, highlighting what can happen when an outback community hall committee, in an attempt to get funding to save their hall, tries to impress a Member of Parliament during his visit for a debutante ball.

The performance involves students, teachers and music by The Basic Principals, featuring the school’s principal Graham Doust and assistant principal Rod Johnson.

Mr Doust said it’s been great to get teachers and students involved in a CHATS production.

“Everyone has been having heaps of fun. The shows are a good use of the new hall and will be the first outside performance held there.”

The show will include a two course dinner, provided by P&C volunteers (BYO drinks).

The first performance is this Friday, April 1, from 6pm, for a 6.30pm dinner and 7.30pm show.

Other evening shows are being held on April 2, 8 and 9.

Matinee shows are April 2, 3, 9 and 10 (arrive at 12.30pm for a 1 pm lunch).

Tickets can be purchased at the Jetty Memorial Theatre between 10am and 4pm on 6652 8088.

Tickets cost are adults $40, concessions $35, children $30, group bookings $33 each.
