Theatre thrives around the Bay

SHREK the Mu­si­cal is in full pro­mo­tional swing.

I’ve seen peo­ple around town wear­ing Shrek sweat­shirts, sign-writ­ten cars (or maybe one car I’ve seen ev­ery­where), so­cial me­dia posts and ad­ver­tis­ing ga­lore— Shrek the Mu­si­cal by Stage Right Trust is ev­ery­where.

I spoke to a Shrek sweat­shirt-wear­ing bloke the other day in the makeup aisle of Kmart. Turns out he’s one of the three lit­tle pigs and needed some help pick­ing out foun­da­tion and eye­liner.

It must be a mas­sive un­der­tak­ing to put on a show, with such elab­o­rate cos­tum­ing cre­ated from scratch.

All the am­a­teur theatre com­pa­nies in Tau­ranga are do­ing spec­tac­u­larly well.

The tal­ent, hard work, ded­i­ca­tion and the pro­mo­tional savvy of our theatre com­mu­nity is ex­cel­lent. Just about all have a show on right now.

They’ve all stepped up to turn Tau­ranga into a thriv­ing am­a­teur theatre hub and we’re all notic­ing.
