AUDIENCE members enjoyed a blast from the past at the Allansford and District Primary School annual performance on Wednesday night.
Titled Music Through the Decades, each class was assigned a decade and song to sing and dance to.
Teachers Carolynne Sheppard and Gemma Sheldon said decades covered included the ’20s, ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and 2000s, while staff and the school committee were performing a hit from the ’40s.
Mrs Sheppard said classes had explored a wide range of things about each decade, including what clothes they wore and what make-up they used and how things were different to what they were now.
Mrs Sheldon said the pupils were extremely excited about performing in the annual production.
“We’ve been doing it for three years now and it’s really exciting for the kids,” she said.
“They love dressing up and performing and parents love seeing their kids on stage.”
The school had a full rehearsal last week and the pupils had smiles from ear to ear.
Mrs Sheldon said the pupils had done a great job learning their routines.
Songs included were as diverse as Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Singing in the Rain, while Mrs Sheldon’s class performed The Charleston.
“I’ve got a grade 1-2 class so we’re doing the Charleston, which they didn’t know anything about or how many years ago that was.”
