SunLive – Schools compete for performing arts award

Trustpower Arena hosted school teams performing at Showquest, Aotearoa’s largest performing arts competition for schools.

Bay of Plenty was the fifth region to host the event.

Rockquest Promotions general manager Matt Ealand said this year’s regional Showquest competition has once again opened their eyes to the talent of young rangatahi in New Zealand.

“We are extremely grateful to be back with live events this year and once again we are amazed at the high quality of the performances,” said Matt.

“The leadership and teamwork required to build a performance at this level is immense and these school teams have done an incredible job. “

“I was seriously impressed with all the mana tonight in all of the performances, they took us on a journey and I was so invested every step of the way,” said Grace Palmer, judge for the night.

“There was so much heart going there which was really cool to watch.”

In the Junior section, Lynmore School took the winning place with its play on the theme of your teams. In the Open section, Te Kura Kaupapa Māori O Hurungaterangi wins the title with his play on the theme “The Lost Boy”, telling the story of a boy growing up in their community.

Teams are judged globally on their production, performance, movement and theme.
