Local talent pooled to put performers in public eye

MUSICAL director Fiona Cole and choreographer Yana Dwyer have always known there was a lot of local talent in Ipswich's performing arts scene.

Now they've decided it's time for others to make the same discovery.

The duo has established an Ipswich-based entertainment company showcasing promising young singers, dancers and performers.

The company, Allula Productions, provides businesses, corporations and individuals entertainment for a variety of functions - from weddings to corporate events.

"We wanted to give talented, up-and-coming performers in Ipswich the opportunity to get semi-professional experience in the industry," Ms Cole said.

"Allula Productions helps them bridge that gap between amateurs and professionals.

"These days, when people need entertainers to perform at an event, they tend to turn to Brisbane-based companies.

"But we have the talent already available right here in Ipswich."

Allula Productions will present its singers, dancers, musicians and performers in a show called Rise of Allula.

Ms Cole said the event would highlight the extreme ability and diversity of its group of entertainers and invited the community to attend.

"The show will serve as a great showreel for prospective clients," she said.

It will take place at Studio 188 on September 27 at 7pm and on September 28 at 3pm and 7pm.
