Maryborough Central show how it’s done. CRAIG WINTER

KIDS in costume and greasepaint wowed adjudicators yesterday, in the character recital section of the Queensland Eisteddfod at the Brolga Theatre.

With outfits ranging from bright green face-paint to a simple flannel shirt, the children, their teachers and parents went all out to make their performances a complete production.

“They've all been excellent,” Queensland Eisteddfod Fraser Coast committee president Peter Leney said.

The theatre hummed with the noise of violin and strings solos in the morning, with the speech and drama performances taking over the stages yesterday afternoon.

Today's vocal, brass and woodwind solos will close the youth section of the Eisteddfod, with the adults' performances to start Good Friday.
