Summer songs and Christmas tunes have been part of our Kiwi way of life for decades -- and as we sing we reminisce over past festivit- ies and the friends and family we shared them with. David Dell, the director of the Take Note Singers, says the group will be adding a new song to their repertoire, A Kiwi Summer,b y songwriter Sal Humphreys, which celebrates our Kiwi way of life. We'll also be singing a scrump- tious arrangement of Silent Night, as well as the American classic I'll Be Home For Christmas, the ever- popular Feliz Navidad, Mariah Carey's jazzy Jesus, What A Won- derful Child and many other great songs.'' If you're struggling to get into the feel of the season, Dell extends an invitation to join Take Note Singers as they prepare and share summer and Christmas songs. The Porirua Take Note Singers group started up again last Tuesday in the Community Room at Pataka. New singers are welcome to join and there are no auditions -- just lots of fun singing'', Dell says. Con- tact him on 528 8595 or via the web- site www.takenotesingers.co.nz. Turning back time: Disco Inferno performers Annie Stierand, Katie Evans, Carl Johnstone, Tanisha Wardle and Delwyn Monk. Popping back to glam 70s The mirrorball will be glistening, as will the seventies spirit when Porirua Little Theatre opens the bar for its upcoming production Disco Inferno. The troupe without a home, after its Whitehouse Rd theatre was closed by Porirua City Council due to safety concerns, is working out of temporary premises in the Porirua CBD. Its Popup Porirua Little Theatre'' is at 4 Lydney Pl. The venue will suit Disco Inferno, which is set in a nightclub. The audience will be the patrons. Directed by Sandy Brewer, the musical will be packed with more than 25 classic seventies hits including Celebration, Crocodile Rock, Hot Stuff, I Will Survive and YMCA. Ms Brewer says it is a musical celebration of the perpetual spirit of the decade that brought us flared trousers, platform shoes and more glitter than could be found in Liber- ace's wardrobe. The production features 25 per- formers and a live band, promising a night of high energy, foot tapping, disco pleasure. Disco Inferno, from November 7 to December 1. BYO, including glasses.
