The television studio at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga will have a younger audience than usual when CSU students recreate the popular ABC Television program, Play School on Friday 12 October.
Under the supervision of television production lecturer Mr Patrick Sproule, the Bachelor of Arts (Television Production) students will record an episode of Play School before a live audience of children from the nearby CSU Children’s Centre and Goodstart Early Learning Ashmont.
Bachelor of Arts (Design for Theatre and Television) students have re-created the Play School set for the children. Acting students will play the role of Play School presenters.
“Having a live audience adds a further element of reality and feedback to our students’ learning experience with the children usually being quite forthcoming with comments on what they like most in the production.
With a colourful and detailed set and great performances from our acting students, it also provides a fantastic opportunity for the children to see how one of their favourite television shows is made in the studio environment,” said Mr Sproule.
The children will also be given a tour of the Play School set in the television studios. The television studio is one of the facilities available to students in the University’s School of Communication and Creative Industries.
