RIBIX Productions is a newly-formed theatre group about to burst onto the Canberra stage with the premiere tonight of an original musical play, “The Train Station”.
Made up of local high school students, Ribix came about when a small group of local high school students wanted to put their individual talents together into a production to show in Canberra.
After a few failed attempts at trying to get productions off the ground, they decided to write their own play, one they could model around themselves without worrying about copyright infringements.
The result is “The Train Station”, written, directed and produced by 17 year old Rachel Pengilly. The entire original musical score has been composed by 16-year-old musician Shannon Parnell.
The only two adults on the production team are staying firmly backstage so that the 7 young actors can take seize the limelight as they play many different characters.
“The Train Station”, Pengilly says, explores the significance of the everyday choices people make. Among other important life lessons are how to overcome fears, standing up for what you believe in and the importance of family.
“The Train Station”, at North Belconnen Baptist Church, Chomley Court, Evatt, 7-10pm, Wed-Fri February 3-5, bookings to thetrainstation-theplay.weebly.com
