Calling for New Zealand’s brightest new stars

21 May 2019

Calling for New Zealand’s brightest new stars to perform at the nation’s favourite Christmas party!

The producers of one of the nation’s biggest free outdoor Christmas celebrations are calling for talented newcomers to audition for their chance to be part of the iconic musical spectacular Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park, now in its 26th year.

Musical director Dixon Nacey and his team are looking for exciting new talent to perform alongside some of New Zealand’s most popular entertainers at the two big outdoor concerts in Christchurch and Auckland later this year.

Dixon has worked with some of the biggest names in the local and international music business and encourages young aspiring performers to audition for the iconic show which has helped launch the career of many young Kiwi entertainers.

Dixon says, “This is a unique opportunity for young performers to work alongside some of the biggest stars of the New Zealand music scene in front of a massive live audience. It’s a chance to be part of an event that celebrates Christmas in true Kiwi style, so if you think you’ve got what it takes, put your hand up and give it a go!”

The much-loved outdoor celebration is a multi-cultural showcase of talent and since 1994 has starred a huge number of popular home-grown and international acts.

Each year over 400 of the nation’s best singers, dancers and musicians perform in the two shows, and since the first concert over 9,000 of the nation’s top performers have appeared on the big stage.

Annette Chillingworth of Coca-Cola NZ says, “The Coke team is very excited to be bringing this truly world class event to the big stage for the 26th year. It’s been so rewarding to be able to present a show that has become the favourite Christmas celebration for thousands of Kiwi families and communities.

Aspiring performers are encouraged to apply online to audition. Successful applicants will be invited to attend the audition workshops being held next month in Auckland and Christchurch.
