Years 2 & 3 See ‘Billionaire Boy’
This term the boys in Year 2 and Year 3 had the opportunity to visit ‘The Riverside Theatre’, Parramatta to see the musical production of ‘Billionaire Boy’ (based on David Walliams novel). It was with great excitement the boys boarded the bus. On the bus one of the boys mentioned he had never been to the theatre before, he had only been to his sister’s dance concert. During the production the boys were truly enthralled. The costumes, scenery, song and dance routines kept the boys entertained from beginning to end.
On the bus ride home I asked a few boys on what they enjoyed the most about the production and what they would do with a billion dollars, their responses varied greatly:
‘My favourite part of Billionaire Boy was when he kept throwing out money. If I had a billion dollars I would buy a farm because I really enjoy the bush.’ Anthony
‘If I had a billion dollars, I would put half of it into charities, like animal charities and then I don’t know what I would do with the other half’. Oliver C
‘If I had a billion dollars, I would buy all the things I couldn’t afford like diamonds, a palace, and jewelry. But I don’t think it would make me happy.’ Jordan
‘My favourite part was when the boys were running in the cross country race. If I had a billion dollars, I would buy a house.’ Jonathan
‘My favourite part was seeing Raj, because he is a character in all of David Walliams books. If I had a billion dollars I would see if I could buy the Australian cricket team.’ Alex
‘My favourite part was when Joe Spud had a real friend in the end. If I had a billion dollars I would buy three million books and then I would read them and then I would play every sport in the world.’ Christian F
The boys are never disappointed when they pick up a David Walliams novel and this special theatre experience has cemented their love for this author.
