Young and old will come together on stage again for a reprise of a popular musical set in England. The Kaleidoscope Performance production Old debuted at Art- works Theatre in June and a new, improved version of the original show plays over Labour Weekend. It opens in a resthome and soon jumps to the era of the World War II evacuations. The story tells the life of Rosie at three different stages, by three sets of actors, as told by her best friend Betty. Director Kathy Ogletree, who penned and choreographed the show, also sings and acts the part of Evelyn, the daughter Rosie gives away for adoption. It is packed with humour, pathos and energetic dancing but, Ms Ogletree says, the new show is even better. We're adding back the scenes I had to take out last time as we didn't have the cast members.'' The original cast will keep their leading roles and new chorus members, led by musical director Pat Urlich, will add a full voice to the production. The last show was a sell-out and this one is for a strictly limited season. Old plays at Artworks Theatre at 7pm on October 19, 20, 26 and 27, and at 2pm on October 21 and 22. Tickets are available from the I-Site in Oneroa -- $21 A reserve, $18 B reserve, $10 children's bench seats. Phone 372 1234. Door sales $25 subject to availability.

The festival takes place at Q Theatre in Auckland until October 21 and Waiheke Marketplace has another double pass to give away -- this time to the Colours of India show on October 20. The festival is in its ninth year, and is a huge affair featuring nearly 500 performers in 37 shows highlighting a large variety of dance styles. Festival director and Waiheke resident Celia Walmsley says the event includes a show for everyone, including men. From productions featuring secondary school students and dances for two to burlesque shows and a salsa ball, there is a wide choice, including an audience with Sir Jon Trimmer and a show just for kids.

Folk songs of a capital city steeped in tradition Folk songs: Matthew Pickering, left, will be performing at Artworks Theatre accompanied by Brendan Schenk. Wellington based folk singer- songwriter Matthew Pickering is stopping off at Artworks Theatre as part of a string of concerts he is playing around New Zealand. He will be putting into song form the little events and idiosyncrasies of Wellington and the people who inhabit it at his show on October 12. He will be accompanied by banjo player Brendan Schenk. By day he works in Parliament, documenting the aural history of the government as a Hansard editor. But his main love is words and his- tory. The concert at Artworks comes hot on the heels of the release of his third musical offering Up at the Bunkers on October 1. The CD is a seven-song collection that speaks of couch-surfers, seaside adventures and gatherings of friends. Pickering's music follows a strong folk tradition of storytelling, and draws influence from the likes of Tim Buckley and Joanna Newsom. His songs are warm and intimate laced with small details, filmic ima- gery and an earnest and refresh- ingly honest voice. Guest performers Bond Street Bridge conjure up a combination of evocative lyrics and lush instrumental arrangements. Songs about birds rub up against tales of adventure and loss, along with covers of old folk songs. Tickets cost $10 and can be booked online at firstname.lastname@example.org or via voicemail on 372 2941.
