Tawa College’s school production kicks off this Friday and promises to show off the pedigree the school has developed in singing and dancing. Standing Ovation 2 is the sequel to the well- received show from 2009. It takes about 20 numbers from many different stage shows, such as Oklahoma, Oliver and Mary Poppins, and even contemporary favourites from Glee. The wings of the college’s hall will see a flurry of costume changes, and everything needs to run like clockwork. Choreographer Sara Scott has been working with the school’s head of music, Murray Cameron, and the 76 students taking part for the past 12 weeks. The recent school holidays were fully used to finalise the songs and routines they hope will wow their audience. ‘‘There will be solos and duets and trios that will suit all the different singers we have, but there is a big chorus number as well,’’ Ms Scott says. ‘‘It’s been good to get that full week of practise, it’s been intense at times, but everything’s coming together well. The support from everyone involved is a huge part of this show.’’ Along with the college’s costume department parents lending a hand, Ms Scott says the local chemist has provided makeup samples, pots and pans have been sourced at Trash Palace, and Porirua McDonald’s and KMart stores allowed them to film scenes that will be played on a big screen. It has been a lot of fun getting to this point, but they have a repu- tation to uphold, too. ‘‘It’s an amateur show, but not as far as we’re concerned. There’s been rehearsals three times a week for 12 weeks, plus this extra work in the holidays, and these guys [students] know they need to work hard. But I think it’s going to be fantastic, some of these performances have blown me away.’’ Standing Ovation 2 runs on August 5-7 (the 7th is a matinee session) and August 11-13.

Taking your news online EDITOR’S NOTE For more than 61 years, Kapi-Mana News has been delivering locals a weekly dose of news, opinions, entertainment, sport and advertising in a newspaper in their letterbox or business foyer. The printed newspaper will remain the backbone of our service to readers and advertisers for the foreseeable future. But technology marches on, and your community newspaper is moving with it. At kapimananews.co .nz, readers can find a selection of news, columns, reviews, letters, personality profiles, sports reports, a weekly quiz, and more. Our latest innovation is to put a complete digital version of each Tuesday’s paper online on the day of publication. If you prefer to catch up with what’s happening on a screen, or if your paper deliverer is running late, you have instant access. Just turn the pages online as you would if you had the paper copy in your hands. There’s no charge. The ‘real view’ version, accessible through a link on our homepage, has other advantages. For a competitive cost, advertisers can make their messages come alive on screen by embedding video clips, online profiles or linking to their own websites. It’s an excellent way to expand your mar- ket and lift your profile for very little additional cost. To discuss these opportunities, email manager Richard Gor- don (email@example.com .nz). Kapi-Mana News has always been your platform to tell your news to more than 40,000 other readers in the city. We want to put more readers’ contribu- tions, photo galleries, sports results and notices out through digital media. In the near future we’ll also be adding video clips of key events, and audio recordings of interviews. You can also check us out on Facebook.com/ kapimananews. If you’d like to discuss getting your news, photos and results to a wider audience, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 237 8118.
