Col­lege up­beat with Mo­town

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT - By MATHEW GROCOTT

The sounds of the Jack­son Five, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Lionel Ritchie and Gla­dys Knight and The Pips have been ring­ing out from Pu­taruru Col­lege Hall this week.

Stu­dents have been pre­par­ing for their show Mo­town Fever which takes the stage from Tues­day un­til Thurs­day next week.

More than 20 stu­dents are in­volved in the pro­duc­tion which is likened to a cabaret show.

Stu­dents will per­form 26 songs from Mo­town leg­ends with back­ing from a live band of their peers. The show is thought to be a first of its kind for the school.

Re­hearsals have been hap­pen­ing for six weeks and are tak­ing place daily this week.

The show be­gins on Tues­day with a mati­nee for school stu­dents. That evening there is a show for those over 18 which in­cludes din­ner and a li­censed bar. Two more per­for­mances fol­low on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day for all ages.

Tick­ets are avail­able from Pu­taruru Col­lege.

MO­TOWN FEVER: Pu­taruru Col­lege is putting on a show of Mo­town hits next week.
