Pilbara Performing Arts Academy – The BFG

On June 25th at 7:00pm, the IF Foundation Wickham after School Performing Arts Academy will make its stage debut with a performance of “The BFG” by Roald Dahl adapted for the stage by David Wood. This production will be presented by arrangement with OriginTM Theatrical, on behalf of Samuel French, LTD. at the Wickham Community Hall.

The Wickham performing arts students have been working tirelessly the past two terms gaining the confidence and skills to put on the play. In term two they have been rehearsing their piece as well as creating the set, costumes, lighting and sound elements. Parents and students have been working together to get everything finished and have a wonderful performance. Space is limited; however, if you would like to reserve a seat please email Ariana at Ariana@iffoundation.org.au.

The IF Foundation implements and facilitates programs to shape the future of young West Australians and has been conducting creative and engaging arts intervention programs throughout the Pilbara for a number of years. The performing arts division continues their programming this year with an ongoing partnership at Roebourne District High School working with all ages, and implementing visual arts to their programming as well.

In addition to this residency the IF Foundation will be conducting a bi-weekly ‘Mums and Bubs’ program in Karratha, as well as their after school performing arts academy in Wickham.

The IF Foundation believes the arts can act as a conduit for discussion and a catalyst for change in the community. Through the programming offered, The IF Foundation uses theatre and the arts as a means to explore current social issues such as anti-social behaviour, violence and drug and alcohol abuse whilst encouraging leadership and confidence in the youth of the community.
