Last night to catch show
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.
