Come along and see our talented young performers as they tread the boards for this very special Lieder Youth Theatre production. 
Adapted from an old Chinese fable, and featuring 23 of Goulburn's best and brightest young performers, The Circle of Chalk will be performed 4 times only from 20-22 July.
Set in the Scottish Highlands and following the story of an orphaned clan heir, the production has been adapted and directed by drama teacher Jock McLean. 
The Circle of Chalk is derived from a 14th Century Chinese fable and playwright Bertolt Brecht's classic re-telling of the same story in his 'Caucasian Chalk Circle' from 1944.
Now the same well-known story will be told in a brand new interpretation written especially for Goulburn's young performers, who have been rehearsing and preparing the production for many months with teacher and director Jock McLean.
The ensemble consists 23 performers aged 10-15 years, and features themes such as showing bravery in the face of danger, and giving people a fair go. Capturing a wonderfully refreshing and youthful outlook on the world, The Chalk Circle will delight people of all ages.


Working hard and having lots of fun at rehearsals

Periphery - 19-21 October
