ASPIRE Presents: The Cost of Wishes

Did your parents ever give you coins to throw into a well to make a wish when you were little? I was so certain my wish would come true, even though I would wish for like the most ridiculous stuff!

When a group of friends finds a covered-up well Molly can’t help but wish for that pair of sneakers she’s had her eye on. Little does she know her to wish is about to wake up a host of creatures at the bottom of the well, called the Well Dwellers, all determined to grant her wish and those of everyone around her.

In ASPIRE’s 2022 production we are reminded to be careful what we wish for as chaos ensues when wishes are granted regardless of their effects on others. Featuring a host of magical tunes ranging from pop and folk to heavy rock, the talented young cast and crew from primary and secondary schools across the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle cannot wait to ‘Let the granting begin!’

Wednesday 27 July, 11:00am
Thursday 28 July, 11:00am
Friday 29 July, 11:00am and 7:00pm
Saturday 30 July, 7:00pm
