Arts Upper Hunter hosted a two day drama workshop at Mt. Pleasant Public School run by Tantrum Youth Arts’ James Chapman and Amy Morris. James and Amy worked with 27 Year 4, 5 and 6 students to devise a play for the school’s end of year presentation night. Entitled “There’s No Place Like Home” and loosely based on The Wizard Of Oz, the plot revolves around a somewhat catastrophic school excursion to Sydney. Many thanks to school principal Julie Black for her enthusiastic support of the project.
