PLAYING a lead in a school production was Jazz’s dream – and that was no lie.
She is Pinocchio in Harkaway Primary School’s upcoming whole school production. Students from Prep to Grade 6 have been busy rehearsing for the production, which will be held next month.
“Ever since I was in the juniors, I have wanted to be one of the lead role characters when I hit the seniors,” Jazz said.
“This year my dream has come true. My life had been pretty normal until I heard the news that I was to be Pinocchio,” she said.
Jazz said the pressure was starting to rise, but she was feeling more confident with every rehearsal.
“I love the way everybody in the school has a spot in the production, and I think everybody will pull together well to entertain the audience well on production night,” she said.
“I wish everybody good luck.”
Performing Arts teacher Karen Pastor said the students were very excited about the production and their ’fabulous costumes’.
“The children’s talent will be showcased during this event in various dance styles such as ballet, jazz, tap, folk dance and hip-hop,” she said.
“The senior students are carefully developing their characters while letting their wonderful personalities shine through. As their teacher, I feel proud and honoured to work with such a gifted team.”
Harkaway Primary School will present Pinocchio on Friday 30 August at Frankston Arts Centre. For more information, contact the school on 9707 1475.
