Fisk Street Primary School students put on a show for their parents last week, combining storytelling and dance in a spectacular Fisk Street Follies.

The show began with Room 7 performing Heads, Shoulders Knees and Toes, which was followed by Room 4 and Room 6's joint production of The Tale of the Lazy People.

Act 3 saw a dynamic performance of The Emperor's New Clothes by Room 10, and the Follies closed with an entertaining rendition of Rumpelstiltskin by Room 11.

Drama Teacher Greg Dunn said the play was a great opportunity for students to showcase what they have been learning to their parents and the community.

"The kids love performing in front of their families," he said.

"The receptions got to do their favourite song, we had a South African legend in The Tale of the Lazy People about how monkeys came to be, and then finished with two old classics - The Emperor's New Clothes and Rumpelstiltskin.

"The students were bouncing off the walls for about a week so they were really enthused about it. They helped make the set, helped build everything and chose their own costumes."

Mr Dunn said the production was very beneficial for students who needed some encouragement to come out of their shell.

"This is brilliant for those kids who are a little bit shy, in drama we discussed how there's not such a thing as shy when you're an actor, because you're being someone else entirely," he said.
