Celebrate the Anzac spirit with school girl, Cathy, and a young WWI soldier Gibbo, in this popular play written by Jude Bridge. Funny, sad and uplifting, this production shines a light on the sacrifice these brave young men gave for our country (which is sometimes hard for us to appreciate today). Not just a lesson in history, the play questions our changing attitudes to war both now and then. It explores the Gallipoli Campaign, Lone Pine, Simpson and his donkey, Australian involvement in subsequent wars, the role of peace keeping forces and the balance of power. Perfect for your Anzac day celebration.
Cyber Busters has taken Perth schools by storm with its witty script by Angelique Malcolm, and hip hop music written by MCTrooth. CJ and Jess bump into each other in a park after school; both meeting a mysterious "someone" there at the same time. They don't like each other and it's all very awkward. But when strange and bizarre things begin to happen, they start to discover each other's dark secrets of cyber bullying and how they have become victims and perpetrators! The play explores all types of electronic bullying and how to prevent it.
