“The interactive stage show is based on an adolescent kid called Wanda, who discovers she has super powers. I won’t give too much away, but I can tell you the show is a great combination of funny, emotive and musical” said Anna van Riel.

This will be third time the show has been performed in Southland.  “I am really looking forward to bringing the show down to Southland, as I grew up in Invercargill” said Ms van Riel.  “The show has received positive response from the schools who have seen it, and I believe it’s a great way for the kids to learn about waste."

WasteNet Southland Senior Waste Officer, Donna Peterson said “We are bringing Anna back to Southland after her popular performances last year.  Her interactive musical is a great way to engage with children and share our messages to reduce and reuse.”

“The Waste Free Wanda musical not only educational it is entertaining. I already have a favourite song – couple of cups – which tells the story of disposable cups.”

WasteNet are now taking bookings for performances during 1-5 March.  The 4-5 March dates have already sold-out.  Make sure to register your interest, its free, without obligation and ensures your school does not miss out as spaces are limited.
