Wanted - One Stuffed Dog

Wanted - One Stuffed Dog

This year¹s Nelson Arts Festival crew needs a stuffed Alsatian.

The stuffed dog is a prop in the Australian comedy/theatre/dance show Blue
Love that stages at the Suter Theatre during the arts festival in October.

Technical Director Antony Hodgson says he¹s sourcing props locally for the
Aussie shows to save on freight:

³A stuffed dog would also be quite hard to get through customs,² he says.
³I¹ve emailed every taxidermist in New Zealand but right now I¹m on a hot
lead of a stuffed dog that was spotted recently at the Blenheim dump!²

Antony is also looking for a 70's dining table and chairs complemented with
a curved domestic bar a dining suite in keeping, and for the Canterbury
Œcoming of age¹ drama Peninsula he needs two old black wall mounted
telephones and a vintage brown leather rugby ball - these were loaned by the
Ferrymead Museum when the play was staged as part of the Christchurch Arts

If you can help contact the festival office at the Nelson City Council ph 54
60 212 or ring Antony on 021 776623
