Hi-5 to perform at Civic Centre
THE dream of hundreds of Ipswich youngsters will come true when the Hi-5 team performs its latest show at the Civic Centre stage in March.
New cast member Lauren Brant, speaking from Adelaide yesterday, said the show was “an amazing fun journey”.
She’s the “girlie” character, mostly dressed in pink.
“Basically we’re a heightened version of ourselves. Everyone has a hidden kid in them,” she said.
“I’m a little bit cheeky. I get to dress in fluoro clothes.”
Hi-5 Surprise! has been on the road for four weeks.
They’re heading back to Sydney to rehearse, then go on a seven-week tour.
A born entertainer, Ms Brant has been training in the arts since she was three.
“It’s really great fun being a children’s entertainer – they’re so unpredictable and gorgeous,” she said.
“Every day’s different. We performers enjoy watching them as much as they enjoy watching us.
“I’ve always been involved with children, although most of the plays and musicals I’ve done have been for adults – except for Humphrey Bear.”
Ms Brant said the show had a great storyline, lasted about an hour and ended with a party.
“For many children, it’s their first time in a theatre,” she said.
“The whole time we have to dance and sing. It’s a lot of fun and interaction – we encourage yelling.”
Hi-5 Surprise! will be performed at the Ipswich Civic Centre on March 23, at 11.30am and 2pm. To book, call 3810 6100 or go to www.ipswichcivichall.com.au.
