Southlanders enjoyed a treat with the performance of Southland Superstars highlighting local talent and celebrating Southland history.
The one night show event featured acts depicting the early 1900s through to present day, celebrating the music, dance and song of that era. Each decade featured a performance from that time and the event combined acts from across a variety of ages said organiser Tama Dean. “There were nearly 90 people in the show. The oldest person in the show was 60, the youngest was 7.”
The cast was made up of 15 different primary and intermediate schools, multiple high schools, school leavers and Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) students says Tama. “I think it’s an awesome forum for the best talent of all ages. We highland dancing through to hip hop, bagpipes to electric guitar…. there’s a huge range of the very best songs and dances and much more.
