2018

Two productions were mounted at Burrinja Cultural Centre.

The RAPA Ensemble group created ALICE IN STEAMPUNK LAND, this was an adaptation of Caroll's "Alice in Wonderland" with a mash-up of Kafka's "Metamorphosis".  The work was an  extraordinary production showcasing the wonderful character development capabilities within the group and included song and dance.

The 8-11 year olds staged a premier of a funny absurdist play titled: THE LAST DRAGON'S CHAIR. This group had their audience laughing in delight, and their understanding of character and stage timing was beyond their age.

1. The RAPA Ensemble staged Addams in-Famaily Fued.
