South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT - By ADEN MILES

Hop aboard the magic car­pet be­cause Toko­roa In­ter­me­di­ate School will take you on a jour­ney in this year’s op­eretta Sheik, Rat­tle ‘N’ Roll.

The pro­duc­tion be­gan on Mon­day and ends tonight at 7.30 in the school hall.

The pro­duc­tion is a mu­si­cal ad­ven­ture set in 800BC Baghdad and tells the tale of con­fu­sion, power and in­trigue in­volv­ing princes, princesses and Ali Baba and the thieves.

Co-pro­ducer Elaine Long says staff and 100 stu­dents have been prac­tis­ing for around four months. ‘‘They’ve taken to it pretty well. It has taken a lot of prac­tice but you can see their con­fi­dence is grow­ing and the sing­ing is won­der­ful. We have some re­ally good soloists and they are backed up by a choir of 35,’’ Mrs Long said.

‘‘There is also a good group of dancers. We are just won­der­ful.’’

Re­hearsals have been held three days a week.

SHOW­TIME: Toko­roa In­ter­me­di­ate per­form­ers Braiden Allen-Vano, Sasha Te­Whare and Richard Newton will per­form in the school pro­duc­tion for the last time tonight.
