Cute critters have ears for music

IF YOU see a menagerie of native animals converging on St Joseph's Primary School today, don't be alarmed.

They're little actors in the school's Christmas musical, Little Joey's Gift.

A cast of more than 140 kids will take to the stage, with star Mae Carroll playing the role of Little Joey.

Co-director Renee Howland said the kids were eager to perform.

"We've been rehearsing all term. The kids are really excited and there's a bit of a buzz in the school," she said.

"They've really loved it."

The opening scene of the musical will star the Junior Joeys - preschool children who will be starting kindergarten at St Joseph's Primary School next year.

Mrs Howland said the musical was part of the school's arts and music program.
