South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Game show It’s in the Bag se­ries 5 will be in Pu­taruru this Sun­day at St Pa­trick’s Hall with doors open­ing at 5.30pm.

En­try is by koha with all money raised go­ing to Pu­taruru Youth Mat­ters Trust for the lo­cal Pu­taruru youth cen­tre.

Trust chair­woman Pam Carter said the trust was pleased to be a re­cip­i­ent of the show.

‘‘This is very ex­cit­ing, and we en­cour­age ev­ery­one to come along.’’

Twelve live shows will be recorded in lo­cal halls with a grand fi­nal sched­uled for April 2013.

Hosts Pio

Terei and Stacey Mor­ri­son will be in­tro­duc­ing a new au­di­ence game in this se­ries, with one lucky per­son at each show join­ing the stage to fin­ish a well-known Maori song.

They will be helped along by Pio and Stacey and if they get it right they will have the chance at a bag or the money.

‘‘ I love that New Zealand’s small town’s hide such great tal­ent! I to­tally get a run for my money,’’ Pio said.

The prizes in se­ries 5 are big­ger than ever, thanks to UBUY who are sup­ply­ing more than $40,000 worth of goods rang­ing from televisions, lap­tops and fridges to tram­po­lines and pool ta­bles.

‘‘ It will really cre­ate a huge buzz in the small towns to see peo­ple walk away with great prizes or cash,’’ pro­ducer Libby Hakaraia said.
