There's 'pirates' in Bangalow

The walls of Bangalow’s A&I Hall reverberated to the sounds of rollicking nautical songs and the ‘aaarghs’ of 200 young ‘pirates’ when Bangalow Public School presented its recent musical, ‘Pirates of Bangalow’.


In what was universally hailed as a most professional and entertaining production, the Bangalow students fused such diverse acts as a hip-hop dance with traditional choreographed acts such as ‘Octopus’s Garden’, and lots of hearty singing of, and dancing to, rewritten songs embracing the pirate theme.


Stellar performances included ‘Long Ross Silver’, who sounded a lot like Mr McKinnon, and his partner in piracy, ‘Capt’n Louis’, who looked a lot like Year Five student Louis Spiteri.


Teacher Lin Culbert, in thanking everyone involved in the production, reflected on the talent and dedication of the teachers and students at the school and the wonderful generosity of the local businesses and community members in helping to make the production such a success.
