Central Otago Mirror - - SUMMER HOLIDAY GUIDE - By CHE BAKER

Re­hearsals are well un­der way for what is ex­pected to be the largest ever Stars in Their Eyes show in Alexan­dra. Alexan­dra Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety mem­ber and show di­rec­tor So­nia Tay­lor-van den Ys­sel said a to­tal of 27 per­for­mances, in­clud­ing singers and dancers, would take to the stage in the show. ‘‘The lineup is ab­so­lutely mam­moth,’’ Mrs Tay­lor-van den Ys­sel said. Many faces from past shows were re­turn­ing for this year’s con­cert, but there would be sev­eral fresh faces as well who would be show­ing off their ‘‘se­cret tal­ents’’, she said. ‘‘Peo­ple can well and truly ex­pect a great night out. We have ev­ery­thing from rock opera to the lat­est hits,’’ she said. Per­form­ers had been putting in a lot of prepa­ra­tion be­fore Christ­mas, ‘‘the bones are all there, now it’s just the fi­nal tweak­ing’’, she said. Four shows will be held as part of this year’s event with open­ing night on Jan­uary 23 and the grand fi­nale on Jan­uary 26. Tick­ets to the show go on sale next Wed­nes­day.
