Ararat West performs two sold-out shows

After months of preparation, Ararat West Primary School has staged its production of ‘Where There’s A Will There’s A Way’ this week at the Ararat Town Hall to two full houses.

The students spoke with AC News during their rehearsals this week, explaining how the show has come together.

“My character is Will and I’m trying to find my fortune so I can marry. Everyone is learning their lines pretty quickly. I’m a little nervous but excited at the same time,” Dane Cardinaels said before opening night.

Emily Kelly also agreed and spoke of the fun atmosphere the students are enjoying.

“Everyone is enjoying the show and everyone’s involved. There is lots of laughter, lots of dancing and just lots of fun,” she said.

Director Leanne McCready wrote the original production, as well as directing. She explained how dedicated the students have been throughout rehearsals.

“The production is going very well. I’m proud of what the students are achieving. They are doing well and I haven’t had to prompt them at all,” she said.

“They have done a really good job of learning their lines. The kids are putting in a really good effort.”

“The audience can expect lots of fun and brightness and there are characters they can relate to and they will know. There are also a few little jokes in there that they will catch on to.”
