After years of supporting worthy

Players hope their next
production will serve to boost their
“Who’s in bed with the Butler?”, by
Micheal Parker, will be staged at
Labour Weekend. A comedy/farce,
it’s only the second time it has
been produced in New Zealand –
the first was in the North Island
where it was a great sucess.
Popular local director Kathy
Gilligan will again be steering the
show so audiences can expect a
fast paced, hilarious production.
Initial auditions will be held on
July 29 and anyone interested in
taking part in any aspect of the
performance is encouraged to
come along that night.
Men are usually in short supply
when it comes to casting shows so
Players members are partlicularly
keen for men to come along. New
women are also always welcome.
“Who’s in bed with the Butler?”
follows the outstanding success of
“Shop till you Drop” in 2005 and
“Stiff” in 2007 as fundraisers for
the Fiordland Medical Centre.
Having supported the medical
centre in this way, and also helped
equip the stage in the newly
developed Events Centre over the
last few years, Fiordland Players
are looking forward to expanding
their own assets as a result of this

The Te Anau Library hosted one
of its most popular holiday pro-
grammes recently with more than
40 youngsters taking part.The pro-
gramme, which had a sea theme,
included two half-day sessions for
younger children on July 7 and one
for older children on July 14.
Librarian Lisa Millar said the
theme for younger children was
“Under the sea”. Led by Com-
munity services librarian Willie
Solomon, of Winton, this was a
huge success. Mr Solomon read to
the children, taught them a song
and they also did activities such
as building a sea creature out of
modelling clay and a collage from
things like, sand, shells and stones
collected from the seaside.
The theme for older children was
Marine Life in Fiordland and was
led by Department fo Conservation
marine ranger Kath Blackmore.
She taught the children about
Fiordland’s marine reserves and
showed slides of the life beneath
the sea. They also enjoyed a quiz
based on a map of Fiordland and a
wordfind on marine life. Mrs Millar
was delighted with the response
which has inspired staff for future
