Students applied skills learned in class
to their fundraising efforts, producing a
cookbook with recipes from famous New
Zealand fashion chefs and designers,
including fashion icon Trelise Cooper.
The fashion class made tights, which,

this is their first time out of the country.
It's exciting just getting out of the

Wellingtonians will get to see A Midsummer
Night's Dream with a fresh twist next month.
Students from the New Zealand School of Music
will perform New Zealand's first opera perform-
ance of the Shakespeare classic next month. And
for the first time, mischievous Puck will teach
Titania her lesson through song.
Director Sara Brodie begins her version of the
play in a fairy-dominated forest. The story
revolves around three intertwining plots, all con-
nected by the marriage of the Duke Theseus of
Athens and the Amazonian queen, Hippolyta.
The lead roles have been taken by Bridget
Costello as Titania, Bianca Andrew as Oberon and
Joseph Baxter as Puck.
The show will be magical, enchanting and
funny as the plot explores the character's dreams
and realities, while crossing between past and
present,'' said Costello.
The performance will be used for grading
purposes for the cast of 25, who range from second
year tertiary students to post-graduates.
Costello and Andrew hope to use the show to
further their opera careers.
A Midsummer Night's Dream, August 3 to 9,
Memorial Theatre, Victoria University.
