The Ararat Town Hall will host Robot Song, a 2019 VCE Drama syllabus production, later this month.
The production is based on writer/director Jolyon James’ experience being a parent of a child on the Autism Spectrum.
Ararat Rural City Council CEO Dr Tim Harrison said Robot Song sends a message about how we support, foster and celebrate difference in children in the face of an increasingly rigid and homogenised world”.
The show is described as an honest, intensely funny and often unconventional production that has been superbly crafted by its creators.
A must-see for young people growing up in a world where bullying is widespread but who need to understand that difference should be seen as an asset.”Fiona Parker, ABC
Eleven-year-old Juniper May is given a petition signed by her whole class stating that she is “the most hated person in school”.
Her life is thrown into complete meltdown- she stops eating, won’t return to school and her parents become more and more desperate.
Eventually, after consulting all their options, her parents use their last resort – a singing robot.
Robot Song will play at the Ararat Town Hall on Monday May 27 at 11am, and is open to school groups only.
Tickets are $12 per student. For more information and to book, visit HERE or phone the Ararat Town Hall Box Office on 5355 0900.
