Show rolls into town
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.
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.
