TUART Hill Primary School’s inaugural school production The Magic Circle will focus on themes of courage, hope, understanding and mateship.
The November 12 production, about a migrant student, aims to celebrate the diversity of the school, which has 49 different language groups in its student and parent community.
The narrative follows main character Arley, who tries to navigate and make sense of her new country.
Director Richelle Russ said the play was a way to understand the challenges migrants can face in a new country.
“The play will take people on a journey through Aboriginal history, the arrival of the first fleet, the gold rush and Australia’s more recent migrant history,” she said.
“This walk through Australian history is done in a really fun way, however the show is also packed full of emotion to really help the audience connect with the characters.”
The show also includes songs written by Kathy Prosser of Possum Music who was awarded Australian Children’s Songwriter of the year in both 2013 and 2014.
