Join students as they explore the Second World War jobs, lifestyles in fair dinkum school production

Jordyn Parmesan and Louise Saric will be two of the stars in Marian College’s ‘Dinkum Assorted’ performance at EMPAC starting tonight. The production will be running during this week and delves into the lifestyles of biscuit factory workers during the Second World War.

Marian College is inviting everyone to come along for a cup of tea and ‘fair dinkum’ biscuit as the school’s production ‘Dinkum Assorted’ hits the EMPAC stage this week.

Some 30 students will take part in Linda Aronson’s story about a group of women working in a biscuit factory in a small country town in Queensland during the Second World War.

The audience will meet Grace, the forewoman of the water biscuit section, and Pearl, her counterpart in the creamy biscuit section, and of course their crews as they fight to save their jobs and keep their group together.
The play deals with life, death, romance, betrayal and an escaped nanny goat.

You will laugh and you will cry all the while being entertained by an excellent cast who bring you moments of poignancy and hilarity all rolled up in a war time sing-a-long.

College principal and drama teacher Vicky McGowan said the performance was sure to please everyone in attendance.
