Tal­ent hits cat­walk

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Par­ents and pupils at the Mata­mata Academy of Dance are ex­cited about their up­com­ing roles in the Stret­ton @ Wai­hou Fash­ion and The­atre show.

“Per­form­ing on the Wai­hou cat­walk will be quite a new ex­pe­ri­ence for the girls,” said Sarah Duffell, mum to three of the dancers.

“We have had a trial run on the cat­walk.”

Les Munro, di­rec­tor of the Wai­hou De­signer Cre­ations Com­pe­ti­tion show, said Mata­mata has pro­vided out­stand­ing tal­ent to the last three shows and this year the town has again pro­vided many mod­els, de­sign­ers and per­form­ers.

‘‘With a se­lec­tion from the An­nah Stret­ton sum­mer col­lec­tion, ex­cit­ing fash­ion en­tries from Win­tec and BOP Polytech; en­ter­tain­ment by Sharon Cot­ter, star show singer from Tau­ranga; and Katie Trigg of Ngahi­napouri, a 14-year-old opera singer; along with bal­let and Waikato’s top gym- nasts, this year’s show will be big­ger and bet­ter than ever. Don’t miss it.”

The show is spon­sored by the Stret­ton Group, Pow­erco, Fon­terra, Sil­ver­Fern Farms and the Wal­lace Cor­po­ra­tion, and will be judged by An­nah Stret­ton, Raewyn Pen­rose and Shirley Frew.

Tick­ets are avail­able at Wal­lace Gallery in Mor­rinsville and Pi­ako Sta­tionery in Te Aroha for the four shows from Septem­ber 19 un­til Septem­ber 22.


Ready to dance: Aimee Duffell, Kate Grin­ter, Is­abella Duffell and Amelia Duffell.
