Glam­our era on stage

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By NI­COLA STE­WART

Mata­mata In­ter­me­di­ate is set to be trans­ported back to the glam­orous 1920s era of flap­pers and gang­sters in their up­com­ing pro­duc­tion of Flap­per.

The story fol­lows young Polly Pep­per, played by Madi­son Dearlove, who is about to turn 18 and in­herit a price­less di­a­mond neck­lace.

Close to 100 stu­dents are in­volved in the full-scale pro­duc­tion – from act­ing, to light­ing and back stage pro­duc­tion.

They have been re­hears­ing ev­ery lunch time since the be­gin­ning of the year with di­rec­tor Avon Hansen and mu­sic teacher Blair Stan­bridge.

Flynn Drys­dale- Dunn will be play­ing pi­lot cow­boy Buck Wayne and said he was look­ing for­ward to open­ing night.

‘‘I’m not re­ally ner­vous I just want to see how the play will come to­gether. I re­ally like be­ing on stage and get­ting to dress up in cos­tumes.’’

The pro­duc­tion will run in the school hall at 7.30pm from May 22 to 24. Tick­ets are avail­able at the school of­fice or Fraser’s Take Note.

They are $5 for a stu­dent and $10 for an adult.
