Dajarra kids will get a chance to proudly tell their own story after Easter
The Storey Players are back in Dajarra after an enforced break due to COVID last year.
Melbourne-based Simon Storey first took his theatre group to Dajarra in 2018 after obtaining a grant from Cloncurry Shire Council to develop a performance "The Untold Story of Dajarra" with local schoolchildren.
Mr Storey said they were now working with the kids to write their own Rainbow Serpent story to present to the community on Friday April 16 in Dajarra.
"This will be their own story and not connected to any one group or people and we are looking forward to creating this work together with the kids of Dajarra," Mr Storey said.
"The show will include an 8-meter Rainbow Serpent that we are creating during the school holidays like one we made in Birdsville in 2018:"
The Storey Players is a charitable organisation whose principal mission is empowering disadvantaged kids through drama workshops and storytelling activities to strengthen their self-confidence and increase their literacy skills.
They have had a connection with western Queensland since they took their Burke & Wills story The Ghost of John King along the route of the 1860 expedition in 2017.
