EXPECT a lesson in music history when Richard Johnson Anglican School's primary pupils premiere their musical next week.
The school's 240 students in years 3 to 6 are ready to face the music in Rocks to Rap, a history of music from tribal to Middle Ages, Beethoven through to rock'n'roll, blues, African, reggae Elvis and rap.
Two public performances will be held next Tuesday and Wednesday at 6.30pm.
A third matinee performance will be held for invited guests and nursing home residents.
Pupils have been rehearsing since term two.
"There will be lots of cuteness and costumes," co-ordinator Julie Anne Seach said.
"They are a very talented group and there will be lots of surprises on the night."
It's the second musical for the Oakhurst school's primary section.
Tribal dancer Erica, 8, looks forward to her moment in the spotlight and her family has bought 13 tickets.
"I enjoy being on stage," Erica said. "I think I'll be a bit nervous but my dad says that's a good thing as it helps you perform well.
"It's going to be an amazing musical."
The Ricky J Singers from years 1 and 2 will also appear.
Between the music, singing and dancing will be a video starring some of the pupils stuck in a museum searching for answers to an assignment.
One of the stars of the video is Alex Back, of year 6, as Professor Higginboffin.
"It's been fun for everyone to work together,"Alex said.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $8 a child, and $34-$36 for family passes.
