its 20th year.
Former Riverlander Desiree
Frahn, who is now with Adelaide
Symphony Orchestra, will join
the cast for the upcoming Three
Kings show after appearing in her
first Little Production in 2001.
Three Kings producer John
Gladigau said he was looking
forward to welcoming Ms Frahn
back to the St Peter’s Lutheran
“The wonderful thing is that
she has since gone onto do some
pretty amazing things,” he said.
“But, she has retained her
Riverland and down-to-earth
roots and is keen to come back.”
Mr Gladigau said Ms Frahn
first got involved in 2001 at the
age of just 14.
“She probably helped shape
what Little Town looks like
because before she came along,
we actually had no singing roles
on stage,” he said.
“Everyone is really excited to
have her back.
“The public reaction to the
news has been overwhelmingly
With the young cast recently
announced, Mr Gladigau said he
was looking forward to Ms Frahn
joining the team.
“I think the exciting thing for
me and for the production team

“With a young cast – and a
young singing cast especially –
to have Desi be around them,
working with them and mentor-
ing them will be great.”

promises to have talent galore
following the cast announcement
Little Town Productions will present
Three Kings at St Peter’s Lutheran Church
later this year, with local youngsters Joey
Haenen and Charlotte Lawrence taking on
the main roles of a talented young cast.
Three Kings producer John Gladigau said
auditions were held last month.
“It’s the most fun day of Little Town of
the year, but it’s also the hardest,” he said.
“It’s always tough when you have that
level of talent.”
Mr Gladigau said the abilities of those

“The reality is that we have a fantastic
talent base through those teenage years and
I think we have really seen that come to the
fore through the last couple Loxton High
School musicals,” he said.
“You really want to use and grasp the
youngsters while they are there.
“While you could say it is a younger cast,
it’s wonderful we get the opportunity to
involve them while we still have them in
Loxton because they have a lot to give.”
This year’s production will also include
some shared roles.
“We don’t like to leave anyone out who
has obvious talent that we can utilise,” Mr
“While it wasn’t the intention that the
roles of Priya and Casper would be shared
roles, we couldn’t not utilise this talent.
“Sometimes we even change and restruc-
ture roles to fit the talent we have got.”
Mr Gladigau said attendees will be able
to reminisce as part of the 20th anniversary
Gary Halupka and Peter Jarvis, who are
playing the two wise men, are reprising
