An optical illusion dance using mirrors and ultraviolet black lights will be coming to the Bay this July through to August.
Produced by a local staging organisation The Charitable Stage Company, Moonlight is a modern contemporary styled dance show choreographed by Sam Tomaszyk, a young BOP dance and theatre enthusiast.
“I have been very excited to create Moonlight as it is something new and a great way for our cast of young dancers to get out there and show their talents” says Sam Tomaszyk.
The dance show features a cast of five performers Blake Ward, Caitlyn Hopping, Lydia Emson, Courtney Beehre and Sam, the choreographer.
“We have now been in creation of this piece for six weeks and we still have 4 to go, this goes to show how technically challenging the dancing is.
“The show is themed around light and reflection, this involves using mirrors on stage ultraviolet black lights and much more exciting tricks that have been brainwashed up by our technical designers. That we cannot wait to unleash on stage.
The Charitable Stage Company is a non for profit organisation staging shows around the Bay since the start of 2016.
“We like to create theatre that can go to benefit local organisations in the community, all money made through ticket sales goes to local community organisations, this time around it is going to Vector charitable trust in Te Puke a youth and community led non-profit organization, with business mentoring, fun, creative, events, directory, and creatives venue.”
Moonlight comes to life on the stage at Litt Park Theatre on Park Lane in Te Puke from July 22-August 5, with night and matinee performances available for $16 for adults and $12 for child.
