Music and Theatre New Zealand Tour 2012

With just ten days to go until the New Zealand Drama and Music tour we launch our first Blog!

After many months of planning, fundraising, rehearsing and performances 30 students and 7 adults are ready to visit New Zealand for three weeks, including three days in Singapore on the way.

An advanced group which is made up of Mr Lonsdale and two students will leave on Tuesday 27th March flying into Hong Kong for three nights where they will be guests of Fukien Secondary school, a Sandbach School partner.

The main group leave on Wednesday 28th March to Heathrow where they will fly to Singapore for three nights where the Big Band will play in open air venues.

Both groups will then move onto the second leg of the tour flying into Christchurch and meeting up together in Hanmer Springs, which is in the South Island. The next day will see the group as one touring across to Nelson via Kaikoura where they will be for three nights. Here the Big band and ‘The Exam’ will give performances.

There will be chance on Thursdy 5th April to meet up with the Geography tour as they overlap before moving from Picton to Wellington on a interislander ferry (ship is Kaitaki). The group will arrive in Wellington for the evening before transferring to Havelock North to check-in to NYDS (National Youth Drama School).

The National Youth Drama School is held annually at Havelock North High School in beautiful Hawkes Bay, providing innovative, quality tuition through a wide range of classes. Students aged from 15 to 20 come from all over NZ and beyond, to learn about various aspects of theatre and film, meet new people and have fun. The school features a range of courses.
The school features a range of full time courses. Some courses concentrate on one main HOME GROUP, others work on one main home group and experience a ‘taste’ of two other classes.

NYDS will broadcast ‘LIVE’ over the internet some performances so look out for these.

After a week of the school the group move to Auckland for sightseeing before heading home.

We will be blogging here during the tour so keep watching for updates.
Many thanks
