FOR those who enjoy singing in their tractor cabs, cowsheds or woolsheds, it is time to share their talent with the wider community.

Auditions are being held on Sunday, August 30, for the Winton Theatre restaurant show We Don’t Know How Lucky We Are

As this show was “singing-based”, organisers Alister Gray and Jolene Kynan-Wilde, both of Winton, were looking for “up to 20 people”, with a strong focus on those who could sing “foremost”, as well as actors.

Gray said the theatre group hoped the cast would predominantly be represented by Central Southland people, with support from Invercargill performers.

It would be the third performance by the theatre group, Winton Theatre Friends, with its first show four years ago, That’s Life, and its second show Something To Talk About in 2018 proving to be more successful than anticipated.

Gray said although this year’s show would be “a fun, musical evening”, it would also be a “reflective look at the [various] situations New Zealanders had found themselves in because of Covid lockdowns… and the effect that 2020 has had on us all”.

“There is bound to be something, everyone could relate to in the show.”

The show, to be held from November 26-28, would be catered by Country Manor Catering.

Although the Friday nd Saturday shows had “completely sold-out” there were limited tickets for Thursday’s opening night.

No previous acting or public singing experience was required and auditions were open to anyone over the age of 18. Anyone interested in auditioning should make an appointment by phoning Jolene Kynan-Wilde on 021 188 1777.
