Youth perform in the K.A.O.S Funhouse Variety Concert

K.A.O.S staged three performances of Funhouse Variety Concert at the weekend, with positive reviews from the audience.

It was Rob Huskisson’s first time in the director’s chair, after starting with CADS and K.A.O.S 14 years ago.

“I wanted it to be an enjoyable time for all the kids,” Mr Huskisson said.

“It has been fun, challenging, and very rewarding through rehearsals.”

It comes down to hard work from the 23 kids, and the dedication of the parents to get them to rehearsals, he said.

He said the cast had met all his expectations. “I was quietly confident,” he added.

“There were a few nerves on Friday night, they were excited to get going, they put on a great show.”

By Sunday afternoon they had performed the show twice already, and except for an audio slight at the start of the performance, (the first and only of the weekend), K.A.O.S pulled it off without a hitch.

Members of the audience were dancing in the aisles to rock band Undressed to Impress, and comedy skits had the crowd in stitches.

The youngest performing member was 3-year-old Alec Gardiner, and the eldest Abby Woods, 14.

The show included solo and group performances of classic songs, Girls Just Wanna Have FunGive Us a Home Among the Gum Trees, and We Are Australian. Joke sequences, and comedy skits.
