A MAGICAL musical, set in the Australian bushland, has been developed on the Border.
Albury Wodonga Theatre Company will present Dreaming in Albury on June 21 and 22.
Wodonga-based composer and musician Bohdan Krowicky has written the words and music for the hour-long show, excluding only The Drover's Dream.
Krowicky said children would play bush creatures, who generally outwitted the adults in the family-friendly performance.
He said while it was mostly chorus-singing, there were some solo roles for the children.
"It's the first time we've created a whole show to be put on here," he said.
Joseph Thomsen will be the drama director for Dreaming.
Krowicky said he hoped the show would be all-inclusive.
He said Murray Youth Performing Arts was already collaborating on the project and other dance groups were welcome.
"We're trying to make it inclusive of all sectors," Krowicky said.
"This show is set in the Australian bush and we're hoping to get some indigenous performers involved too."
Dreaming auditions will run at Wodonga Senior Secondary College's Performing Arts Centre on March 16 from noon to 4pm. Children should be aged from six through to secondary school students.
Singing rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays at Wodonga Senior Secondary School from 4.30pm to 6pm while drama rehearsals will be scheduled for Sundays in future.
Adults will also be involved in the production, with rehearsals on Wednesday from 7pm to 9pm.
Krowicky said once the children learnt The Drover's Dream, he hoped to take flash mobs into the community.
Dreaming will run at Albury Wodonga Theatre Company's theatre in Albury.
