In the current production put on by the Ōtaki Players, six students from Ōtaki College are starring. Autumn Royal, Lylah Harrison-Greenbury, Tiaho Moeau and Tamzin Rumsey are in the Junior Company. Ele Warwick is playing the role of the Snake Preacher and Cameron La Frentz is Amos, one of the leads. Whistle Down the Wind is a story about a group of children who find an escaped convict in their barn who they think is Jesus. It is set in a small town in Louisiana, where we also meet a young couple of teenagers, Candy and Amos, who want to leave town. Autumn’s favourite part in the show is “when the Convict (played by Tua Fa'avale) turns her face to the audience because it feels like a puppet”. Tamzin and Autumn agree that the best parts are when the audience laughs and that the shows are way better than the practices.
Whistle Down the Wind is currently on at the Civic Theatre for the next two weekends.
