Stun­ning show a ‘dream’ for teens

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Fif­teen Can­nons Creek teenagers got the chance of a life­time to see the world-fa­mous Cirque du Soleil in Auck­land last week. The Spirit of Ran­gatahi art-based hol­i­day pro­gramme was given free tick­ets to a Michael Jack­son- themed show at Vec­tor Arena on Novem­ber 3.

They raised $3000 to travel to and from Auck­land by bus and stay in the city for the per­for­mance.

Leader Joan Buchanan said the show would in­spire many of the group’s cre­ative per­form­ers to aim high.

‘‘It’s so im­por­tant for the kids who are so ta­lented from Can­nons Creek to raise the bar.’’

The show was ‘‘epic and crazy’’, Porirua Col­lege stu­dent Shalom Vaauli Vaa­fus­vaga said.

‘‘Our trip to Auck­land was like a dream come true to see such an amaz­ing show.’’

‘‘This was the first con­cert I have ever been to,’’ Alysshah Tatupu said. ‘‘ We were to­tally stoked. What’s next?’’
