Bush Telegraph - - Entertainment & Dining - A re­view by DAVE MUR­DOCH

Evolve Per­form­ing Arts per­formed its three-part show on De­cem­ber 15-16, thrilling large au­di­ences.

The show fea­tured a va­ri­ety of dance styles built around two fa­mous mu­si­cals, Aladdin and

Oliver, with a hip-hop seg­ment called Skoolz Out in be­tween.

Each seg­ment was sup­ported by elec­tronic back­drops and in the first in­stance some in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the Aladdin story was pro­vided.

The lat­ter was a charm­ing ren­di­tion of the story fea­tur­ing bal­let, tap, con­tem­po­rary and jazz genre from be­gin­ners to ad­vanced.

Skoolz Out fea­tured a re­mark­able range of hip-hop styles, tak­ing a day at school through les­sons to lunch, de­ten­tion then more les­sons.

Oliver re­turned to the other dance gen­res as bal­let, jazz, tap and con­tem­po­rary dancers per­formed to the well-known and much loved mu­si­cal high­lights of the fa­mous show.

Once again all age groups were rep­re­sented from 5-yearolds to teenagers .

Di­rec­tors of the show Amy Mac­don­ald-Te Huki, Ash­leigh Ho­era and Lisa Hig­gin­son can be proud of what their pro­teges pro­duced.

And con­cluded with lots of cel­e­bra­tion as Oliver is re­united with Mr Brown­low.

Aladdin wins the heart of Princess Jas­mine (Jas­mine Man­iopo­toHenry).

Skoolz Out fea­tured home eco­nomics.

The ge­nie (Max Te Huki) and his guards of­fer Aladdin the golden op­tion.
