Thanks to everyone involved in creating a fabulous show at the Garnet Station theatre in Westmere, Auckland, in support of the Circus Play Project. The fundraiser was a special edition of the Verity George Variety Show, featuring Verity’s one on one interviews with special guests – interwoven with poetry, comedy, and in this partiular episode, stunning live oboe.
Verity’s guests in the Garnet Station Theatre were journalist/producer and media personality Carol Hirscxhfeld, award winning oboist Ruusel Walder, and Jude Smith from the Serious Fun Committee talking about how the children’s circus workshops began in Myanmar in 2014 and how that work has now lead to the Circus Play Project.
Thanks to the hard work of technical manager Lisa Prager, the show went off without a hitch. Fundraising reached NZD $1160 by the end of the night, with all proceeds going towards the costs of delivering the Circus Play Project. Thanks to everyone who contributed and made this a night to remember.
