Parts for all in mas­sive show for Christ­mas

South Waikato News - - NEWS - By ADEN MILES

The Great­est Show On Earth will roll into Pu­taruru and of­fi­cials are call­ing for in­ter­ested per­form­ers to sign up to help kick off the Christ­mas sea­son. The show is on Novem­ber 25, 26 and 27. Pride in Pu­taruru man­ager An­nie Water­worth says the pro­duc­tion is enor­mous and is a great op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies to per­form to­gether. ‘‘It is such a huge pro­duc­tion,’’ she says. ‘‘It is good be­cause we can use en­tire fam­i­lies. Any­one can be in it from 8 to 80-years-old.

‘‘We are ba­si­cally say­ing that peo­ple can be a part of it even if they want to be in the cho­rus line.’’

Cho­rus line re­hearsals will be held on Oc­to­ber 9 and au­di­tions for ac­tual parts are on Oc­to­ber 8. The pro­duc­tion con­sists of 22 songs. ‘‘I did it in high school and we didn’t re­alise how big it was. It is re­ally neat. We will have per­form­ers drop­ping by rib­bons from the ceil­ing and a full band,’’ Mrs Water­worth says. Re­hearsal times are 7pm to 9pm. The Great­est Show on Earth fol­lows the mem­bers of a trav­el­ling cir­cus who put on their own ver­sion of the na­tiv­ity story.
