Tal­ented kids take the stage

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata’s tal­ented young peo­ple have been re­hears­ing for months.

Their hard work will have all paid off when they take to the stage on May 3 for the open­ing of Princess of Pi­ako.

Play­wright and direc­tor Sharon Holmes re­ports prepa­ra­tion for the full- length mu­si­cal was go­ing well.

‘‘We’ve got some very tal­ented kids, but it’s not just a kids’ show, it has an adult flavour too.’’

With a cast of 38, a large group of par­ent sup­port has been es­sen­tial in get­ting the show to where it is now.

How­ever, the theatre is find­ing it dif­fi­cult to pro­vide all the tal­ented singers in the cast with head­sets, as this isn’t a re­source the theatre owns.

Holmes said they were cur­rently hav­ing to hire the head­sets, so if any busi­nesses wanted to help in that re­spect, they’d be es­pe­cially grate­ful.

– Tick­ets for the Princess of Pi­ako are on sale now from The Sto­ry­teller on Arawa St. The show runs from May 3-10 and in­cludes three mati­nees.
