You know you want to be part of it
Start spreading the news . . . a cabaret-style concert called New York Nights will be presented by local singers tomorrow night. Singers range from beginners to seasoned performers who want to try out new repertoire.
“It’ll be a good mix,” says performing artist Mat Hatten who came up with the concept of a cabaret-styled event at Evolution Theatre.
Hatten designed a New York skyline for a backdrop to his set for Evolution Theatre Company’s (ETC) production of Sylvia but since a set with waterfall and jungle for an upcoming junior group production is in place, the theme for the concert night is the music of Disney.
Hatten plans to sing Out There from the Disney version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and in a duet with Chloe Turner (most recently seen in Mamma Mia).
“The song is all about reaching for your dreams.”
A fitting theme for Hatten who plans to study design for stage and screen at Toi Whakaari/NZ Drama School next year.
New York Nights, Evolution Theatre Company, Disraeli Street, tomorrow at 6.30pm. Entry is by koha at the door.
