Show's cast revives the songs of the 60s
It's been said if you can remember the 60s then you weren't really there.
The Waimate Theatre Company is looking to refresh some memories and bring the swinging era back to life with its show Lost in the 60s.
Co-ordinator Hazel Fish says the spectacle promises to be full of energy and nostalgia-filled popular songs from the 1960s.
Trudy Foster directs the music and has the task of getting the voices in line while choreographer Anna McLeod creates shapes, lines and moves.
Directors Sharon Stace and Marion Kortright have been busy getting a team in place to make things happen.
The show is set in a theatre restaurant, split into three sections of love songs, protest songs and dance songs.
The cast moved their rehearsals to St Patrick's hall this week and are busy assembling the set and getting used to the new environment.
Only three weeks are left until opening night on Friday, November 1.
The live band is rehearsing and Barbra Brown and Janice Mehrtens have been busy creating costumes for each of the 15 women and five men in the cast.
Tickets are on sale at Parker's in Queen Street for the six performances from November 1 to 9. The audience is invited to dress up in 60s fashion.
