Swan song show
Since the local operatic society closed some years ago, the Tokoroa Little Theatre has endeavoured to cover the resulting musical show gap.
In the main, these have been tribute shows, based on a selection of popular songs.
They have gone down well drawing much praise and filling the theatre.
Over the past 10 years, productions such as, Regards to Broadway, Solid Gold, Colour my world, Taste of Kiwi, The Motown sound, That 70s sound etc have been successfully staged.
This year’s tribute show, Thank you for the music, could be the last of its type for some time, because there is feeling that a change may be due.
Partly with this in mind, much effort, time and thought has been put into making this show just that bit different from previous productions.
Emphasis will be on sing- ers rather than particular songs; dancers will be incorporated as will overhead projections; staging will be different; costumes will be simpler and colourful.
The action will be nonstop, with 19 singers, three dancers, a five-piece backing band and 30 songs from Abba, Johnny Cash, The Hollies, Neil Sedaka, Seekers, Everly Brothers and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. This show promises to make a memorable swan song.
