Update - June 21

Posted by Go Waihi on 21/06/2012

I’ve got my popcorn and sweets, and I’m all set to settle in for the longest night. Another week or two and we’ll start to notice the afternoons lengthen. We’re looking at the business end of some netball and rugby competitions; hopefully we’ll get to see some Waihi teams in the semis and finals coming up in the next month or two.

Tonight, tomorrow and Saturday night are the last performances of Nana’s Naughty Knickers with Waihi Drama Society. With the curtain coming down on Saturday night, you’re chancing it a bit to get your tickets last minute. Nana’s in a spot of strife for selling sexy lingerie around her neighbourhood, and her granddaughter is not amused. With a few twists and turns in the plot, you’ll have a laugh and a half. Head for United Video in Seddon St for your $20 tickets, and take a friend or two along for a great night out.

Tomorrow night at 7 pm you can be entertained by some of Waihi’s best teenage talent when Waihi Glee perform for you at Waihi Baptist Church Auditorium. They’ll sing, dance and play instruments as they raise funds for uniforms and musical gear, and it’s just a gold coin entry. Also tomorrow night is the Women’s Expo on at Waihi Memorial Hall, starting at 6.30 pm. I don’t know if there’ll be any tickets at the door, so head for La Diva or Jack N Jill in Rosemont Rd and try your luck. With auctions, stalls, a couple of fashion shows and a cash bar, I’m hoping you have a good night, and Waihi Central School raises lots of funds.

Waihi Sport N Action has the answer. Pauline Davies has organised a variety of things to do; badminton, a bike adventure, basketball, badminton and skating. When, where, how much and what to bring are all questions that need to be answered, along with “are there any spaces left”? Call in to the Waihi Events Centre of call 863 7295 and book early if you don’t want to miss out as numbers on some activities will be limited. Who said there’s nothing to do during the holidays?

The Arcadians Show, an Edwardian musical comedy that wowed audiences for over 800 shows, was first performed in 1909. Arcadians wanted to transform wicked London into a land of truth and simplicity. If you missed the show, you have another opportunity next Friday, the 29th, at 7. 30 pm to enjoy The Ohinemuri Singers take on this fantastic musical show. For $10, or $5 for children and seniors, you’ll be treated to a great night of song and story at Waihi Drama Society’s Theatre in Boyd Rd.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: The best things in life are free, and worth every penny.
