Auditions Open For Homai Te Pakipaki Anzac Day Special
Roll up, roll up! Maori Television's popular live-to-air karaoke show HOMAI TE PAKIPAKI invites wannabe singing stars to audition for a one-off ANZAC Day special to screen on Friday April 25 at 8.00 PM.
As part of the channel's all-day broadcast - A TATOU TAONGA: ANZAC DAY 2008 - the music show fronted by Te Hamua Nikora will feature songs that hold special ANZAC significance to the performers. Producer Erina Tamepo says the energetic, entertaining and emotional evening will be broadcast live from Maori Television's Auckland studio and will showcase compositions loved by many as well as lesser known tunes - "all with an ANZAC theme at their core".
Organisers are eager to involve people from all over the country so there is an open call for audition tapes to be sent to Maori Television. Anyone wanting a chance to contribute to the programme should record themselves performing a song with an ANZAC connection and explain in a few sentences what it means to them before sending it in.
Auditions for the non-competitive show will also be held in Auckland at Maori Television on Sunday April 6 from 1.00 PM to 5.00 PM and - for the first time ever - in Invercargill at Invercargill Working Men's Club on Sunday April 13 from 10.00 AM to 4.30 PM. To submit an audition tape, send a VHS or DVD to: ANZAC Team, Maori Television, PO Box 113 017, Newmarket, Auckland 1149.To register your interest in auditioning in either Auckland or Invercargill, email email@example.com.
