Students head into outer space for Christmas

First Prev 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next Last

Forget the North Pole, students at West End Primary are headed into outer space this Christmas.

It's all part of a musical extravaganza that ends at the Sandys school tonight.

Picture black light dancing stars, aliens, robots and astronauts and you might have an inkling of what to expect from An Out of this World Christmas.

“It's about four astronauts that crash land on a planet called Zork with all different aliens who help us get back to earth for Christmas Day,” explained Adriana De Medeiros.

She plays an astronaut, one of the show's leading roles. It's a first for the ten-year-old. “I've acted before but never had a speaking part,” she said. “I started off doing another role that had less speaking parts but I believed in myself and [tried out for] an astronaut. I'm nervous, but still excited.”

Arianna Sabir also has a leading role. The ten-year-old plays another astronaut in the show.

“I acted two years ago but I didn't play the main character,” she said.

The upper school student went for the role because she “really wanted to say a lot”. “I like acting,” she added. “I also kind of wanted to feel like an astronaut going into space.”

Both students had their view on what they considered the best part of the programme. Adriana said she was most impressed by “the alien dance because it's funny and scares us”.

Arianna, who plays the “corny” astronaut, said she really loved the finale. “It's when everyone invites us back home and we're singing [the song] We're Glad We're Back,” she said.

She admitted to also being nervous about performing in front of an audience but said she was excited to deliver her favourite line: “I guess up in space everything we eat will be an unidentified frying object. You get it? An unidentified frying object.”

Both girls said they were looking forward to Christmas and hoping they'd get their dream gifts. In case you're reading this Santa, it'd be appreciated if you dropped off a MacBook Air for Adriana and an iPad mini for Arianna.

•An Out of this World Christmas ends its run at West End Primary School tonight at 7pm. Tickets, $8, are available at the door or the school office
