Wednesday Morning saw Lauren and Clint up bright and early at Roma State College, ready to perform ‘The Spirit of the Mask’. It was an extra special performance for Lauren in particular, as it was her old school. Performing at her old stomping grounds, in front of teachers who used to teach her, will go down in this tour as one of her highlights for sure. The students at Roma State College were wonderful. Even the heavy rain shower mid-show did not deter their focus towards the show, and both teachers and students were engaged in the performance until the end.

Post show, when students found out that Lauren was from Roma, keen performers were eager to ask plenty of questions about getting into the field. Coming from a small town, it’s sometimes easy to get trapped into thinking that there’s no opportunities for those not living in the city, and that it’s ‘too hard’. It was nice to see the students’ way of thinking change post show, after some stories and advice.

Next up on the touring schedule- Barcaldine. But to break up the journey, Lauren and Clint would stay in Blackall overnight. Thursday morning, it was back in the car and onwards to Barcaldine, where Lauren and Clint will call home until Monday afternoon…
