A Year 12 student at Saint Mary’s Catholic College in Kingaroy will take the first steps to carving out a career on the stage after he graduates this year.

David Rowberry has been awarded an Empire Theatre Youth Bursary to allow him to study a short course in music theatre.

He will be studying Music Theatre and Classical Acting at the Cuskelly College of Music in Brisbane.

Students will be involved in staged scenes, character and movement classes, text work, chorus singing, acting techniques and ensemble coaching.

They will also be challenged to devise and research their own song material, make and source props, costumes, create soundscapes for voice and potentially fuller orchestration.

Saint Mary’s Catholic College teacher Stephanie Adair said David had excelled in Drama during his secondary years.

He took part in several College musicals, including Peter Pan Jnr and Shrek Jnr, and also demonstrated his skills in extra-curricular activities, appearing in South Burnett Musical Comedy Society productions.
