CHILDREN OF THE

BLACK SKIRT

Written by Angela Betzien

Directed by Amanda Hock

 

Youth Production

Auditions Feb 15th 6.30pm

Ages from 10 to 21

 

Performances - May 5-7

Three lost children stumble across an abandoned orphanage in the bush. They try on the dusty items of clothing they find in the dormitories and become trapped in a timeless world haunted by spirits from the past. The children work together to hear the history to be told and to help release the spirits from the torment of the cruel governess, The Black Skirt. Will they be able to release them all before she floats back down the corridor wielding her enormous scissors? This gothic fairytale for young people tells a history of our local region and other parts of Australia through the eyes of children. Playwrite Angela Betzein was from Rockhampton and was inspired by the Neerkol Orphanage to write this well-known and educational text.

This project delivered with the support of the Regional Arts Development fund, Livingstone shire council and the Queensland State Government
