Karmen show challenge

ORGANISERS of the stage show Karmen say the show is one not to be missed and are calling for support of the young performers part of the production.

The show, which received a positive review for its remake of the Domo ni Karmen classic, has had three shows so far with the final four scheduled for this week.

"The challenges are just getting people to the actual theatre itself," organiser Igelese Ete said.

"We deserve full houses and there's a lot of our audience that turn up on the last day instead of the second or third.

He said similar shows overseas could cost as much as $100 to get into making the conservatively priced $10 tickets almost a free giveaway.

"We really want to get our community to come out and support us as well."

Ete said the other challenge was bringing together a production that melded song, music and dance together to tell a story adding the cast was always striving to give the very best to the audience.

"We just want to encourage audiences to come out and see these guys give their very best in these performances," he said.

Ete also praised the show's lead Ateca Ravuvu who plays Karmen.

"She hasn't been trained as a singer and we are very proud of her taking that job and singing a part like that.

"For anyone to play the role of Karmen is hugely challenging and I trusted her and she's done very well and she's never sang a part like this before."
