LOCAL children are preparing to take the stage when Fringe World Festival hits Perth next week.
After taking out the best children’s show award at last year’s festival for the musical Maisie, Amoré Stage Productions is back with Oakley and Olivia.
Teaming up with Subiaco Arts Centre, the original family-friendly musical follows two siblings who must navigate through a once-in-a-lifetime adventure through time and space while meeting new and wonderful friends along the way, trying to deal with each other and find their way back home.
The show will feature a talented cast of up and coming and established performers and creatives including lead actors such as Charlie Hunt, of Padbury, who has a turn playing Olivia, as well as members of the children’s chorus and those behind the scene.
Other locals featured will be Teah and Katie Steward, of Eglinton, Charles Vellez, of Alkimos, Amelie van Wyk and Bella Bugg, of Duncraig, Glenn Rowan, of Joondalup, and Madison Brink, of Jindalee.
“Featuring music that’s bound to be stuck in your head for days afterwards and an incredible cast of seasoned professionals and talented young performers, Oakley and Olivia is set to be the feel-good musical for all audiences to enjoy,” Amoré Stage Productions director Paris Ceglinski said.
“The heart-warming show will explore the relationship between siblings with all its highs and lows.
“But never fear, in between all that mushy gushy stuff you’ll be laughing through the crazy antics these two siblings and their friends get up to.”
Six one-hour shows will be held at the Subiaco Arts Centre studio on January 17, 18 and 20 at 11.30am and 1.30pm. Suitable for all ages.
