GRADUATES: Stawell Performing Arts Company is celebrating the emergence of Connor Williams and Saige Omernik.

Stawell Performing Arts Company has officially recognised Connor Williams and Saige Omernik – the first graduates of its Young Ones program.
The company established the program in 2012 to build skills and performance opportunities for people aged between seven and 17.
Connor and Saige were among the first enrolments and stayed with the program to the upper age limit.
Company officials recognised their contribution to the program at an annual meeting. 
Young Ones leader and SPACi president Dianne Stewart said she was extremely proud of the pair.
“They have truly grown and developed their talents over their time in the program,” she said.
“They have become confident performers able to step up to solo singing and acting roles not only in the Young Ones program but in SPACi’s all-ages stage performances as well.’ 
The two graduating Young Ones will remain involved in performing arts in Stawell and have taken on roles of responsibility with SPACi.
Connor leads the weekly Hip Hop Crew session at Stawell Neighbourhood House and in 2019 will be a general member on the SPACi committee.
Saige has volunteered to organise and run the two remaining sing along fun nights in 2019, and both will again audition for the all-ages Stawell Performing Arts Fest concert performance, on stage in September this year.
Fans can also see them performing at SPACi Take the Stage open mics and other performances in Stawell.
The SPACi Young Ones program is open to new enrolments in terms three and four and enrolments for SPACi Little Ones, for ages five to nine, are open all year. 
A 2019 Young Ones show is Sing Me a Story, which will involve a parade of characters from The Little Mermaid to the Mad Hatter and more on June 26 at Stawell Entertainment Centre.
People seeking more information on Stawell Performing Arts Company Young Ones or other programs and performances can visit the group’s Facebook page or email to request a calendar of events.
