How many little girls can say they’ve shared afternoon tea with a beauty named, Belle?
Well, there were smiles all round last week when the winners of the recent colouring-in competition sat down and did just that. Sitting outside the Marcoola Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank, mascot Piggy came along as well as manager, Kerryn Vincart and Coolum Theatre Players’, Julia Loaney to provide extra giggles.
Fairy, Goody-Two-Shoes also made a guest appearance to help present the winners of the beautifully coloured-in masterpieces with their prize packages. Telina Ellis (Coolum State School), Indianna Winter (Coolum Beach Christian College), Lucy Schaber (Pacific Paradise State School) and Lana Charles (Peregian Springs State School) were the standout entries, but thanks must go to all who entered the competition.
Beauty and the Beast is taking place during the upcoming school holidays. Director, Johanna Wallace said the production is a particular favourite of hers.
Opening with two shows on Saturday, 24 and Sunday, 25 June and Saturday, July 1 and Sunday, July 2 at 11.00am and 2.00pm Coolum Civic Centre, this pantomime promises to warm the heart of all who go along.
The shows will be performed in theatre style seating on a first-come basis. Gelato Mio Ice Cream vouchers will also be on hand for the fanciest dressed young audiences
It’s a tale as old as time – don’t miss it!
