Festival of Colour


Festival of Colour


The programmes are here and they look fantastic - here. We can’t wait to share them with all of you next week.

Thursday 14 February we have a Valentine’s date at the Lake Wanaka Centre where we will reveal the programme for the fifth Festival of Colour. Patrons, benefactors, sponsors, media and special guests have been sent their invitations. If you have been invited and haven’t RSVP’d then please do so as we need to know for catering purposes. Patrons and benefactors will be able to collect their identity lanyard which is used for priority access during the festival. If you are unable to come to the launch then we will mail it out to you.

We also have a launch in Queenstown the following morning on Friday 15 February at 8am at the Frankton Boat Shed Bistro and Café. It will be great to finally be able to talk about the fabulous line up of performers. We’ve already announced that Black Grace Dance Company will be performing ‘Vaka’– and we wish them well on their forthcoming tour of the US before they head down to Wanaka and Queenstown. And of course there’ll be SALON performed in Flair Hair Salon in Wanaka, and the wonderful Laurel Devenie in her outstanding one woman performance of Lady Ann Martin in ‘On the Upside Down of the World’.

The programme will go live on the website at 7pm on February 14 so everyone can see the amazing selection of theatre, dance, music and visual arts. The programmes will be emailed out to our database on the 14th, and posted around town in Wanaka and surrounding area and Queenstown from the 15th onwards. If you’re not sure whether you’re on the database then let us know now so we can be sure to send you a programme.

Patrons, benefactors and sponsors can book tickets from the 14th – but don’t worry we always keep back plenty of tickets for public sales.

Public ticket sales start on Monday 25 February at 8am – online, in person at the Lake Wanaka Centre, phone and the Queenstown and Cromwell isites. All box office sales will be from the Lake Wanaka Centre box office and not the Isite log cabin as we have done in the past. There will be more details in our next newsletter.
Our local production of ‘Tracing Hamlet’ starts rehearsals soon – we do need another couple of male actors so if anyone missed out on the auditions last year and wants to work with one of our top theatre directors and be a part of the festival then do get in touch phone 03 443 4172 or email info@festivalofcolour.co.nz – it will be great fun and a great experience. No previous acting experience is necessary but must be available from March 16 to April 21.

And finally we are really pleased to have been selected by Creative New Zealand as one of three arts organisations in the country to receive one-to-one coaching to develop and implement a new online marketing initiative of our choice. Coaching focuses on a strategy or tactic that best suits each organisation’s resources and marketing goals. We will receive online marketing coaching to the value of $3,000 and up to $2,500 to trial new online marketing strategies, tools or projects, on a matched-funding basis. General Manager Lindsey Schofield goes up to Wellington this Friday for the first session so watch this space…..
