ASPIRE: The Cost of Wishes

27-30 July 2022
32 days from now

Presented by the Catholic Schools Office - Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle

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

When a group of friends find 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 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 young cast and crew cannot wait to ‘Let the Granting begin!
