I’ll be singing, dancing or doing cartwheels in the rain. No more mourning when it’s wet and grey. I’m going to run out with my umbrella, twirl it, gleefully splash around in puddles and tap dance with wild abandon as the heavens open up. It’s the kind of mesmeric effect the enchanting musical Singin’ In The Rain has on every spectator who walks out of the Civic Theatre, humming and wanting to jump hoops just like the highly talented cast, does. The London musical is set in 1927 when Hollywood was trying to discover the next big thing - making a transition from silent movies to the talkies! Now who would have imagined that movies could talk? The stage version is a take on the 1952 American musical comedy that offers a light- hearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 20s. It’s fascinating to watch Don Lockwood, the star of silent screen - and an aspiring young actress who fall in love - cruelly exposing the limitations of Don’s shrilled-voiced co-star Lina Lamont who is desperately vying for the hero’s attention. The use of specially filmed footage of the movie, with an attempt to dub the heroine’s shrill voice, tells us how lip syncing probably came about. What would our stars do without it? The smashing number in which the tap dancing singers perform on the wings of a sleek silver aeroplane to a beautiful love duet, that breaks into a rapturous dance; the foot- tapping Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly dance routines, beautifully designed sets, chic costumes, delightful choreography and slick styling – truly recreate the charm and magic of that era. The captivating musical is not only a perfect pick-me-up in days of gloom and doom but it seriously makes you rewind the melodies of the past. Not sure if any of our pop stars Taylor Swift, Beyonce, J-Lo or Katy Perry can measure up to it. Bring back the glamour and romance of the 30s any day! POINT TO PONDER Bring back the glamour and romance of the 30s The musical that makes you sing and dance like never before COMMENT Have you ever sung, danced and washed away your troubles in the rain?

Public bins supplied by the Howick Local Board will be available on Pigeon Mountain from this Saturday (May 23) until May 28 for residents to safely dispose of rhamnus and moth plant weeds. People can also bring the weeds to Lloyd Elsmore Park between 9am and noon on Saturday and take home a new plant for their garden. Spokesman for the board, elected member John Spiller says most people would have seen moth plant and rhamnus around their neighbourhoods, but never realised how much damage they cause, smothering native flora and garden plants. “Auckland Council can assess and take appropriate actions with infestations on council land, but can’t remove the weeds from private property.” To encourage residential efforts, the board has dedicated funding for a strategic approach, including $13,000 to raise awareness about how residents can identify and remove the weeds from their backyards. The council encourages removal of the weeds by digging out the plant close to the ground including the root system, cutting and treating the vine or stump with herbicide, hand-pulling the tree or vine from the ground when it is wet or damp.
