Rosie Can Do It!

Friday 23rd-Saturday 24th June 2017

A 1940’s story about the world at home.

Rosie Can Do It is a story about the world at home in New Zealand during World War II. The title and theme for this year’s annual SOUNDSTAGE concert is inspired by the iconic image of Rosie the Riveter from the World War II propaganda poster “We Can Do It”. As relevant today, as then, the show explores the roles that we play in work and at home and the dreams and expectations that drive us to follow our hearts and fulfil our obligations to ourselves and our community.

Our largely female cast will prove that girls can do anything, especially if you are ready with a pair of gumboots. All singing, all dancing and all inspired by a backdrop of swinging 1940’s classics and timeless modern anthems, our cast of many will delight and entertain you and leave you feeling that together we can achieve anything.

Presented by the 2017 students of SOUNDSTAGE Nelson and written and complied by Jane Winter.

SOUNDSTAGE music and performing arts school has been offering professional music and performing arts tuition to the talent of Nelson for the last 10 years.
