Joel Kunnethedan and Seth Sinclair both auditioned for the part of 'Pugsley' who is a 12 year boy in the Addams Family in which they both get to portray him in the show with Joel acting one night and Seth the next night. They have been practicing for approximately 4 months for at least once a week and closer to the time they practiced every day for up to 4 hours. Joel and Seth have enjoyed working in the theatre environment where they have learnt heaps, had lots of fun, worked with really really nice people and the learning has been engaging. They reckon the long nights have been hard on their sleep and their singing but have enjoyed every moment of it. The Addams Family is about a quirky family and their daughter called Wednesday who falls in love with a normal boy called Lucas and her family doesn't like him so they try to stop the relationship. The show opened last Friday and is on till this Saturday 19th September. There is a matinee show on this Saturday at 2.00 pm and the other shows start at 7.30 pm. It is a comedy show and is suited for all ages. Joel is acting tonight and Saturday afternoon and Seth is acting Friday and Saturday nights.

Yesterday saw some girls competing in the Top Schools Gymnastics competition held in the Drill Hall where they competed against other primary schools. We had 9 girls compete in the 8 & 9 year old division in two teams which came 2nd and 3rd respectively. We also had 5 girls compete in the 10 & 11 year old division and they came 2nd place. The overall winner for the Top School was North School and hopefully next year with a bit more practice, St Joseph's will do even better.
