DEPART Devonport Wharf 10.00am (Board from 9.30am) ARRIVE Devonport Wharf 3.00pm Meeting to save ferry By SARAH CODDINGTON A 105-year-old ferry may grace the Waitemata Harbour once more. But $30,000 is needed to support the Kestrel coming home to the North Shore. A meeting is being held at the Devonport Yacht Club tonight at 7.30pm to call for people who can assist on a steering committee. The committee needs people who can help with fundraising, maintaining the ship and writing media releases. The Kestrel has been in Tauranga for the past seven years being used as a floating restaurant and has been well maintained. The owner has offered to sell her for $1000 to the Kestrel Preservation Society Inc if she is pres- erved. The vessel was built by Charles Bailey Junior in Auckland in 1905. She ferried the victori- ous All Blacks from the liner in Auckland Har- bour to welcoming crowds the following year. The society has asked for help from the Ports of Auckland, Sea and City and the Auckland Regional Council with the return and preser- vation of the ferry.

North Shore Music Theatre have proved to be consistent performers in terms of production quality. Recent successes include Big Top Cabaret , Little Shop of Horrors , Buddy and The Producers .

A highlight of the season for the cast will be hosting 170 children from Down Syndrome NZ at an exclusive performance provide by the generosity of Nic Anderson from Alper s Dental of Newmarket. Story synopsis: When teenager Ren and his mum relocate from Chicago to a small rural town, he is not prepared for the rigorous local laws. Years ago, following a night of partying at a dance, a car accident claimed the lives of four local teens including the son of a local minister, Shaw Moore. In a misguided attempt to honour the victims, the reverend has pushed through a town ordinance banning dancing and in the process has kept alive a memory that can only foster pain. At the emotional heart of Footloose is a boy long- ing for the father who walked out on him and a man aching for the son he lost. Ultimately Rev Moore realises that only through placing trust in our young people can they become truly trustworthy. Footloose is propelled by the rocking rhythm of its Oscar-nominated top 40 score, the soundtrack album having hit number 1 on the Billboard Charts. Footloose is a feel-good, dance in your seat, great night out. Book now at www.pumphouse.co.nz or phone 489 8360. Season commences from November 6 at The PumpHouse theatre in Takapuna.
