The students of Miss Em's Drama School will take to the Arts Centre stage this Friday and Saturday to present their latest offering Glittering Hope, written by Muttama playwright Martin Boyle. 

The story is set in the goldfields with students not only honing their acting skills while preparing for the play but learning about Aboriginal culture including traditional face painting and didgeridoo playing from Cootamundra’s Kobi Russell.

Catch Glittering Hope Friday, September 15 commencing at 7.30pm, a matinee performance on Saturday, September 16 at 2.30pm and a final performance Saturday, September 16 at 7pm. 

Tickets are available between 9am and 1pm from the Arts Centre this week, or purchase at the door. 

Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 kids under 16 and kids under five are free. 

Miss Em’s Drama School builds the confidence of participants, who have been rehearsing for weeks to bring this latest performance to the stage in Cootamundra.
