Clown kids strut their stuff

YOUNG people from all over the Wellington region have been unleashing their inner clown this week at Clowning Around, a five-day workshop with internationally acclaimed clown Clint Bolster.

Twenty one children and teens have been learning how to use costume, mask, voice and physicality to create their own unique clown, and to create a series of short individual and group performances using their new skills.

The participants will be performing for families, friends and members of the public on Friday night onstage at the Wellington Entertainment Centre in Sale.

The performance will start at 6.30pm and entry is by gold-coin donation at the door.

Clowning Around was organised by Groundwork Youth Theatre with the help of funding from Wellington Shire Council.
