World On Stage 2018

World on Stage event on Saturday 30 June was a magic night which really showed who we are today in Palmerston North

It is not only a display of colour, music and cultural diversity, but it is also the fulfilment of hard work, passion, dedication and cooperation.

Thank you to all our wonderful performers! All our cultures are precious to us, they make us who we are, and we are richer for sharing them and learning about them.

On behalf of the Manawatu Multicultural Council we thank our compere Mona Williams, the show director Tania Kopytko, who planned and pulled the show together, her stage team and the Manawatu Multicultural event team.

A very special thank you to our funders and sponsors – the Palmerton North City Council, Pub Charity and Broadway Dental Care. Thank you to the Regent Theatre staff for your support.

And lastly we thank you, our audience. By buying your tickets you helped this event take place and help support our work!

A great review of World on Stage …“we were treated to an amazing variety of items, with their roots in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, Europe or America, both North and South, all coming together in a colourful array, each celebrating their own traditions with obvious pride, passion and, above all, great joy. The infectious mix was inspirational – an uplifting occasion.”
