"It's just the people and the laid-
back lifestyle that appeals to me," she
Ms Koch said she was pleased to

Waikerie and her hometown.

and being able to sit by the river and
enjoy a glass of local wine," she said.
Ms Koch's sporting interests include

hobbies include swimming, creative
writing and socialising.

invited to attend an information night
at the Bonney Theatre.
Locals who can sing, dance or help out
backstage are invited to gather at the theatre
on Barwell Avenue, Barmera, on Wednesday,

Annie is a Broadway musical about a
mischievous orphan from New York City
who is taken in by a rich millionaire seeking
to improve his image.
The local interpretation will be directed
by Berri woman Narelle James, with
musical direction by Karyn Skewes and
choreography by Rosie Clark.
Mrs James said she was committed to
putting on an outstanding production,
having started preparations for the musical
soon after getting the go-ahead from RMS
committee members several months ago.
"My plan is to create a real family outing
with Annie," she said.
"For me I believe a production needs not
only belly laughs, but also 'pass the tissue'
"I believe it needs big ballads and even
bigger dance routines."
Mrs James said she was planning a more
contemporary interpretation of Annie to
best showcase the skills of cast members.
Bookings for the auditions, to be held next
