The performance is an extravaganza of singing and dancing set against a backdrop of an iconic Wild West town so familiar from those Sunday afternoon cowboy movies.
The Calamity Jane cast is comprised of musicians and performers who won the QLD Youth Music Awards in Brisbane earlier this year, and swept the prize pool at the Toowoomba Eisteddfods in May and July. And it’s not just the cast putting in their best performance. A production of this size has a lot going on behind the scenes. The crew in charge of props, costumes, sets, lighting and sound is a collaboration of students and parents. Their work goes largely unnoticed but without them, there would be no show.
With all this talent, Calamity Jane promises to be much more than just another high school musical. Round up the family and come along for a wild old time. Calamity Jane runs for three big nights from Thursday, 18 August to Saturday, 20 August. The show starts at 7:30pm each evening with a special matinee performance on Saturday at 2:00pm. Tickets cost $20 for adults and $15 for students and concessions.
The show will be performed at Humeridge Church of Christ on Hume Street, Toowoomba. Tickets are available online from www.trybooking.com/QCT or you can phone the Glennie Performing Arts Office on 4688 8816.
