A message from the producers

The Shows Must Go On was born out of the Covid-19 lockdown. The arts industry as a whole saw our livelihoods crumble away over a matter of days. Not just for the lockdown period but cancellations into next year. After several weeks of not seeing an end in sight we decided to take matters into our own hands, and put together a show that would bring some entertainment and enjoyment back into lives around the country.

Not only that, it gave us a sense of importance and a focus, in a time that was so easy to lose sight of both.

We (Pixel & Bounce NZ) joined forces with Electro-Tech Services (ETS) & Hang-Up Entertainment in the planning and producing of this fabulous show. We managed to get on board some unbelievably exciting performers, a number of whom had recently returned from overseas due to the situation. We are so very pleased to be able to present their incredible talents to you tonight.

We would not be here were it not for the support of all our local musical theatre societies over this difficult time for us all. We have received both marketing and technical volunteer assistance as well as rehearsal space and general advice. To that we are extremely grateful.

We are proud to give you a special night to remember, a night to celebrate that we are able to return to the stage. A night of enjoyment, and a reminder that no matter what happens we need entertainment. We need an escape from the chaos of the world around us.

That only the theatre can provide.

THE SHOWS MUST GO ON!

Dave Spark & Glen Ruske
