Holiday drama workshop Teenagers with a keen interest in drama can go to a workshop in the school holidays. The internationally- acclaimed, award-win- ning Red Leap Theatre Company known for its physical approach to act- ing and the visual impact of its productions will join teacher and director Lucinda Peter- ken at Artworks Theatre for the workshop. Students will create an original theatre piece during the two-week pro- gramme. Artworks chairman Colin Beardon says: You don t have to be an experienced actor, an interest in the visual arts or in sound is just as relevant. It is a wonder- ful opportunity for cre- ative young people to work with an exciting, dynamic New Zealand theatre company in their local theatre. The project will be led by Mrs Peterken, who runs the Dramability classes at the theatre. Mrs Peterken is look- ing forward to working with teenagers and is thrilled to have Red Leap Theatre involved, Mr Beardon says. Council support means fees for the 28-hour course have been kept to $95 for the full pro- gramme. The workshop starts on July 16. Con- tact the theatre on 372-2941 or email ArtworksTheatre@gmail. com for further infor- mation. Applications need to be in by July 11. Driving legend at fundraiser Indy car driver Scott Dixon will front up for an interview on stage dur- ing a fundraiser for Men s Health Trust New Zealand at SkyCity on July 30.

Night at the casino for a worthy cause And they're off: Rotary members Bob Upchurch and Tony Sears try out their inflatable horse racing skills ahead of the casino night. Photo: JERYL BROMLEY By GILL ALCOCK Waiheke Rotary is warming up winter with a casino-style evening called Welcome to Las Vegas. The event is on August 13 at Te Huruhi Primary School hall, from 7pm. The glitz and glamour evening is an added extra to the Rotary cal- ender. It is being organised by club mem- ber Margaret Hewitt to make up for the cancel- lation of the organis- ation s two major annual fundraisers, the One- tangi Beach Races and the Waiheke Market- place King of the Bay fishing competition. The Te Huruhi School hall will be buzzing with all the major attractions normally found at a casino -- tables for rou- lette, blackjack and poker, plus a money wheel. The evening will also feature inflatable horse racing where island identities will vie for line honours at the indoor Onetangi Beach Races. The winning celebrity will win a dinner for four for themselves and a partner plus whoever successfully bids for his or her horse racing skills. Among the many prizes up for grabs will be the grand prize of a trip for two to Melbourne and Hobart worth $5000, organised by United Travel Waiheke. The fundraiser will raise money towards the purchase of a new ambu- lance for the island s St John ambulance service and other community projects. Tickets are limited to a total of 300 and cost $30 and include $1 million worth of casino chips as well as supper. They are available from United Travel, 1 Tahi Rd, phone 372-9606. Bring your quality gear to swap Bag some bling: The Bay at Matiatia will host the Te Huruhi School playground upgrade fundraiser tomorrow night. The third annual Bubbles, Bags and Bling night where women gather to bag fabulous clothes and accessories at bargain prices and enjoy a night out with friends takes place at The Bay at Matiatia tomorrow, July 7. The Parents and Friends Association of Te Huruhi Primary School who are organis- ing the event say it will feature DJ Vanessa, spot prizes, raffles, cash-only auctions and plenty of entertain- ment. Shoppers are asked to take along a maxi- mum of five top quality pieces of women s cloth- ing and accessories and only designer jeans will be accepted into the swap. Any items that do not meet the quality threshold can be returned to their owner or donated to the bar- gain bin for the end of evening bin diving . Any items left over will be shared among the island s op shops. Money raised will go towards a makeover of the Te Huruhi Primary School junior play- ground. Tickets cost $20 from Te Huruhi Primary School or at The Bay on the night.
