New Twist On Tale As Old As Time

18th June 2019

The severe weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of the Halls Head Primary School after school drama club, as they performed their production of Belle & The Beast to an almost sell-out crowd last Sunday.

SCRIPTED Drama club has been operating at Halls Head Primary school for seven years. It offers HHPS students real performance opportunities as they stage three full scale productions every year. This year’s first production was Belle & The Beast – a new take on the classic old tale.

“We took the favourite fairy tale and added a modern Australian twist” SCRIPTED Founder & Director Sian Dhu said.

“Our talented actors range from six to thirteen years old, and they rehearsed afterschool for nearly five months to get the show ready”.

SCRIPTED aims to share The Arts with as many people as possible, with community members welcome to watch the show for only a $2 donation.

“It’s not about making profit, “Miss Dhu said, “it’s about giving as many people as possible the opportunity to experience the joy of musical theatre.”
