What do you do when you put 719 chairs out in the school hall, and more than 719 people come?
This was the situation which faced the organisers of Narrabri High School’s much anticipated Music Art Dance and Drama night on Thursday, June 28.
Extra chairs were hastily fetched, and a total of 800 parents, siblings, fans and well-wishers were seated in the Betty Berriman Hall, with more standing.
Such attendance numbers reflect the high level of community support for Narrabri High School, and the incredibly talented staff and students, who put on show once a year at MADD night.
Among the spectators were two former Narrabri High School students Sofia and Charles Fawcett who had travelled from Newcastle especially for the occasion, and former staff member Maree Ford who had travelled from Toowoomba.
MADD night is the product of months of preparation.
While the evening’s entertainment consisted primarily of musical acts, filmmaking, animation and dance were also in the spotlight.
There was also an impressive display of artwork at the back of the hall.
The evening’s entertainment commenced with the Narrabri High School band, which played several numbers while the crowd was being seated.
