Ahol­i­day haven for kids and car­ers

For the kids

The Tribune (NZ) - - COMMUNITY INFORMATION -

School hol­i­days can be cracker, or they can be a curse. For­tu­nately there are a num­ber of en­ter­tain­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties to keep young­sters and their car­ers, oc­cu­pied.

Top kids per­form­ers, Amy Hunt and An­nie Dalzell, have cre­ated their own hol­i­day show for chil­dren aged be­tween 0 and 10. Amy as Glitzy Bop and An­nie as Bossy Bop are pre­sent­ing The Ki­wiBop Show next week at The Globe from April 18 – 22.

A well-known and es­tab­lished duo, Amy and An­nie’s mad­cap mu­si­cal es­capades have been en­joyed live by hun­dreds of chil­dren, show­cased on two CDs, and on DVD with Jim Henderson’s Flossie and Cracker Jim.

More than sim­ply a se­ries of songs, dances and drama, this Ki­wiBop show comes with a sto­ry­line.

Glitzy and Bossy are ar­rang­ing a dance party and the first half of the pro­duc­tion shows their crazy prepa­ra­tions for the event.

As al­ways Glitzy is ditsy and gets the prepa­ra­tions wrong so Bossy has to take over and make sure ev­ery­thing’s ready for the party in the sec­ond half. When it all comes to­gether, the first half au­di­ence get to be sec­ond half party par­tic­i­pants.

The sto­ry­line in­tro­duces Dino Boy, a funky hip hop di­nosaur, and the Mini Bops – six chil­dren who will demon­strate the moves and en­cour­age mem­bers of the au­di­ence to take part.

The Ki­wiBop Show is at The Globe next week from April 18 – 22 at 11am. Visit The Globe box-of­fice or web­site for tick­ets.
