Performing Arts

Monday, 5th October 2009

Ella Hurt, part time office assistant at International Link, is currently working in a volunteer capacity as Assistant Stage Manager for the Stage Artz theatre production company. She is helping to stage “Just So” at the Glen Street Theatre in Belrose.

Never before staged in Australia, and presented by the combined talents of the Stage Artz Theatre Company and the Stage Artz School of Performing Arts, JUST SO will be performed at the Glen Street Theatre during the October school holidays.

All profits from JUST SO will be donated to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Over the past 8 years, Stage Artz has continued to produce quality family musicals which have collectively raised over $40,000 for the kids at Westmead.

The Just So Stories were written down by Rudyard Kipling in 1902, and are gloriously fanciful tales of how things in the world came to be as they are. A century later, Stiles and Drewe, (creators of HONK!, and the new stage version of Mary Poppins taking Broadway by storm), have taken a selection of these timeless tales and adapted them for stage to create a fun-filled, live action, family musical experience that will appeal to children and adults alike.
