Hectic two weeks in store for Evento organisers W By BOBBIE NICHOLLS ith just on two weeks to go, the excitement is huge among the organisers of Evento, Feilding High School’s wearable art extravaganza. Outstanding guest judges WOW award winning designer Fifi Colston from Wellington and Kilt’s Melissa Williams-Lamb from Napier are eager to be there and the format of the night is all finalised. ‘‘But such a lot cannot be done until the last minute,’’ committee leader Amanda Street said. ‘‘We think we have everything finalised and then we see the costumes and we know something is not going to work. We have to come up with something different.’’ The last two weeks are hectic. The small group of organisers also includes Feilding High School teachers Dennis Pearce, Michelle Wilson and Gemma Lawton. Holly Norris, now a freelance graphic designer in Queensland, has come home to Feilding to work with the team headed by her mother, for the third year in a row. ‘‘Holly respected Dennis hugely when she was his student and enjoys working with him now as an equal. She is highly skilled and he passes on a lot of work to her, such as the set design, T-shirts and programme.’’ TRC Toyota New 2013 Toyota RAV4 GXL 2WD CVT $44,900 Retail $39,990+ORC 5506419AA Includes: 5 yr/150000km Platium Warranty 5 yr/75000 Service Plan $500 of Free Accessories Aorangi Street, Feilding.Tel: 06 323 4117 www.trc.toyota.co.nz SAVE $4500 Russell Cameron 027 601 4410 • Paul Early 021 110 2409 Mrs Street said the former student and teacher are alike. While she is panicking at the amount of work to still be done, they are very calm and unworried. ‘‘I’m very grateful Holly does this. It’s something she and I are both passionate about. ‘‘We decided not to charge for the programmes but we have put the price up to $32 for adults and $17 for students.’’ Before the programme can be put together, all the entries are photographed this week by another teacher, Peter Rubery. This means students from other secondary schools from as far away as Taihape, and some home schoolers, all gather at FHS with their costumes and models for a dress rehearsal. This is the first time many of the costumes are seen in their final stage. More than 60 costumes have been entered this year in sections as diverse as Pop Art, Enid (Blyton), Museum (inspiration from the Coach House), and Pink (modelled by a male). ‘‘I thought Pink would be really fun, but the blokes are not keen on wearing a pink costume,’’ Mrs Street said. While there is a huge crew who come in to help stage the show on the two nights – the first night is a students-only show, the second for the public on August 10 – the organising team would love more volunteers especially with finding sponsorship. Organising the next show begins before the last show is packed up and the small organising team would like to grow. This year, BNZ is offering a $1500 scholarship. A special reserve ticket at $45 has been introduced this year. The ticketholder has a reserved seat in the grandstand and a complimentary bag of donated goodies. Evento is on August 10 at Manfeild Stadium. Tickets are available at Feilding Information Centre and i-Site in Palmerston North.
