Have strange things happened, are you going ‘round the twist?
Australian children’s author, Paul Jennings’ famous crazy tales from his Round the Twist series will come to life on the stage at Townsville Grammar School’s Middle School Drama Concert over three nights this week.
Students from Years 7 through 9 will be performing four plays with each play being an adaptation of a short story selected from his major collections - Tonsil-eye ‘Tis, Sucked In, Know All and One Shot Toothpaste.
To add to the fun, there are a number of dances to the famous music from the very successful ABC television series Round the Twist.
All the technical aspects of the evening are managed by the Middle School students who are newly trained in lighting, sound and backstage.
Round the Twist was a popular television show featured on the ABC in the 1990s and early 2000s, telling the story of the extremely strange, but comedic, events that occurred to the Twist family who lived in a lighthouse in a small town in Australia.
The performances will run each night from Thursday 26 of May to Saturday 28 May, with a donation invited for a designated School charity to help the urban poor in India. Tickets can be booked via the Townsville Grammar School website – www.tgs.qld.edu.au
