Funaki Belau (12) performed in the production. She says there was a lot of practice involved.

"We had practised for eight weeks before the performance. The play is about a kid who finds body parts and brings a monster to life.

"I acted the part of a student gang member. We are sort of the bad people in the play."

Funaki says she loved performing at the art show and is happy all the hard work paid off.

He says the students have been working very hard and are proud of their efforts.

"The pupils were given a choice on what they wanted to make. It was motivating for the pupils and SOMAD was a celebration of all the hard work they'd put in to their art work."
