BUNDABERG'S aspiring thespians took to the stage yesterday as the speech and drama section of the Bundaberg Eisteddfod continued at the Playhouse Theatre.

Event co-ordinator Libby Weir said the standard so far had been incredibly impressive.

"The adjudicator said she couldn't believe the amount of talent in Bundaberg," Mrs Weir said.

"We've had so many strong performances and an extra 200 performers compared to last year.

"All up, about 2000 students participated in this year's eisteddfod."

Mrs Weir said the competition provided a wonderful opportunity for students to gain experience on stage.

"Every time they perform they get a bit more confident," she said.

"It then helps them with school presentations."

Mrs Weir said it was really nice to see the respect everyone showed for each other back stage.

"It's not all about winning," she said.

"You see them so happy and all congratulating each other. It's a really fun atmosphere."

The final day of competition will be held this morning, followed by a Gala Concert tonight from 7pm.

The concert will feature the judge's favourite performances from throughout the competition.
