Photo: SASA JERIC By SANDRA CROSBIE Feilding husband and wife, Sasa Jeric and Kasia Kalat- Jeric are instrumental in the latest production at Foxton Little Theatre. The company is producing the New Zealand premiere of Three Viewings by award- winning playwright Jeffery Hatcher. Three Viewings is directed by and includes Feild- ing residents Sasa Jeric and Kasia Kalat-Jeric, who teach at Feilding High School, Feilding, and James Cook Primary School, in Marton, respectively. In Three Viewings, Hatcher explores love, money and loss in a trio of mordantly witty narratives. An infatuated man goes to extraordinary lengths in order to win a woman's heart; a jewellery thief with a hidden secret reclaims a family heir- loom; and a widow confronts the repercussions of her late husband's wheeling and deal- ing. Hatcher weaves these three poignant tales into an evening of remarkable storytelling that will entice and captivate you. Kasia Kalat-Jeric plays Mac, a beautiful Los Angeles drifter, who makes her living stealing jewellery from corpses. When her wealthy grand- mother dies, leaving her nothing, Mac returns to her hometown and attempts to pry loose her inheritance, a dia- mond ring her grandmother once promised her. Her attempts lead Mac to realise there are more obstacles to getting the ring off grandma's finger than she imagined, and more revelations about her own past than she had bargained for. Kasia returned to the Mana- watu this year after completing her Masters of Education in Canada. Her previous roles at the Foxton Little Theatre include the lead in Educating Rita and Murder in Play and supporting roles in The Christmas Express and Larnach: Castle of Lies. The play runs on December 2,3,8,9 and 10 at 8pm and December 4 at 2pm at Foxton Little Theatre, Main St, Foxton. Tickets from Foxy Flowers and Gifts, 06 363 8657. Kiwis wrote carols, too Home made: Kiwi-composed carols will feature at a carol singing event next Wednesday. Most familiar Christmas carols are set in the snow and wintry conditions of the northern hemi- sphere December. This makes the Christmas story seem far removed from our summer Christmas. New Zealand has produced many talented poets and songwriters, and some have composed beautiful Christmas carols set in this country. Fifty- two of the best were collected and released in a song book and CD last year as Carol Our Christmas. The name was taken from the Colin Gibson song Carol our Christmas, an upside down Christmas. On Wednesday, December 7 a New Zealand Christmas Carol event will be held at Wesley Broadway Arts and Theology Centre in Broadway, Palmer- ston North. As well as community singing of Kiwi carols, there will be readings from grandchildren to grandparents retelling the Christmas story in contempor- ary language and Tongan Christmas hymns presented by the Methodist Tongan choir. Entry to the 7.30pm concert will be by koha or donation. This is a family affair that everyone can enjoy, with a real Kiwi Christmas theme,'' spokes- man John Thornley said.
