From sandwiches to the school play

As canteen supervisor at Byron Bay Public School, Bryony Pearson feeds hundreds of children a day, but her talents go much further than just preparing lunch orders.
For the second year, Bryony has written, directed and designed costumes and sets for the school’s show.
‘Peter Pan – Never Say Never’ will be staged in the school hall starting tonight (May 14) and continuing tomorrow and on Saturday night.
Last year’s show ‘Robin Hood Raising The Roof’ was a huge hit and Bryony hopes that this year’s show will be just as successful.
“I wrote the play during the summer holidays and it is based on Peter Pan, but with a few surprises,” Bryony said.
“There are pirates, fairies, a crocodile and unexpected guests as well as hint of James Bond. The show will be action-packed and great for all the family.”
Rehearsals are in full swing and the cast has been ‘working extremely hard’.
Bryony said there were lots of canteen volunteers in the cast as well as a few students and some teachers.
“Even though I have no stage or drama qualifications, I have just loved doing this and I hope it becomes an annual event,” she said. “I want to thank Michelle Cabenett for her help with the sets.”
Tickets are available at the school canteen.
