Golden Globes come to Colenso au­di­ence

The Napier Mail - - WHAT’S ON - ME­GAN HUNT * Wil­liam Colenso presents The Golden Globes on July 6 and 7, with doors open from 6.45pm and tick­ets $15 from the school.

The au­di­ence will be im­mersed in Wil­liam Colenso Col­lege’s 2017 pro­duc­tion.

The cabaret style show called The Golden Globes runs for two nights at the Napier school this July.

In­stead of a tra­di­tional pro­duc­tion where stu­dents are on stage per­form­ing a well-known script they worked to­gether with teach­ers to cre­ate the show.

Au­di­ence mem­bers will at­tend as if they are go­ing to the Golden Globe event, sit­ting at round ta­bles with a mix of short per­for­mances, fea­tur­ing act­ing, singing and danc­ing re­lated to a range of iconic films.

The cast in­cludes stu­dents from Year 9 to 13.

Stu­dents TP Matthews,16, Carea McMa­hon, 17, and Bran­don Cudby, 17, will host the event.

Year 13 stu­dent Carea be­came in­volved with per­form­ing arts first through bal­let as a child be­fore mov­ing into drama.

‘‘I’ve been danc­ing since I was three. Mum was a dancer and got me into it.’’

Bran­don was the lead in the 2016 pro­duc­tion of Drac­ula.

He said this year’s show would be a more in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for au­di­ence mem­bers.

‘‘I think [this pro­duc­tion] is go­ing to be good,’’ Bran­don said.

TP be­came in­ter­ested in per­form­ing arts through his in­volve­ment in mu­sic classes, be­fore a teacher pushed him to take part in the school’s pro­duc­tions.
