THE Queensland Music Festival's production of Boomtown is helping shine the light on the talent in the Gladstone region.

One budding performer set to star in the July show is Elizabeth Osborn.

The 12-year-old rehearsed with fellow Boomtown performer George Cartwright, 13, on Sunday with the visiting QMF team. Elizabeth said her character Ella is in a group of five girls.

"The character is really nice and it's easy to relate to her," she said.

"She's just trying to fit in with the popular girls and she has a crush on this one guy."

Elizabeth said the Sunday rehearsal was fun and they worked on how the characters should be portrayed and the song Take This With You, which will be part of the QMF launch.

In the show, Elizabeth acts, sings and dances and to prepare she practises her craft every day.

This isn't Elizabeth's first foray onto the stage - she was in the combined school musical Honk! She will also appear as one of the monkeys in the upcoming Tannum Sands SHS production of Jungle Fantasy.

"I actually really like being in the chorus. It's really fun. I'm with all my friends," she said.

With her passion and beautiful voice, it's likely that Elizabeth will be seen on the stage in the Gladstone region for many years to come.

"I'm never going to give it up," she said.
