Children hit Brolga Theatre stage for M'boro Eisteddfod

THE Brolga Theatre will be filled with more than 1000 young performers this week for the Maryborough Eisteddfod.

President Irene Smith said the event, which began on Sunday, had been a huge success.

"It's been absolutely marvellous... we've had music theatres, choirs and solo items," she said.

Mrs Smith said the event provided a real benefit for the kids.

"The highlight is the children's really great performances," she said.

"It teaches them communication skills, not to be frightened in public and it's a great confidence builder."

Performances are open to the public with tickets costing $12 for adults and $8 concession.
