The Bard, with teddy bears By TASHA BLACK It s Shakespeare but not as you know it, in this year s Parapara- umu College production. Where There's a Will features the Bard, teddy bears and time travel in a 90-minute show. Written by teacher Caroline Wallis, the story follows two rival colleges participating in a drama competition. The schools decide the best way towinistogobackintimeand enlist the help of William Shakespeare. However, Shakespeare turns out to be not quite what they expected, and actually wrote plays that had teddy bears in them, said Ms Wallis. There are eight lead roles in the story, including a Romeo and Juliet-type love story. The crew would not reveal how the play ends, but did say it was a feel-good story and the lovebirds don t die. The actors have been practising twice a week for six weeks and Ms Wallis said the set design, which includes two columns for a scene in London s Globe Theatre, and the technical side was designed and run by students. The students have had a lot of input into the scripting and the directing of it from early on. Josie Hughes, 17, who plays a drunken Shakespeare, said it had been a lot of fun and took the students out of their comfort zones in roles they would not nor- mally play. He [Shakespeare] is a bit of a twat, but fun to play. Wednesday to Saturday, 7.30pm, Paraparaumu College hall, $6. Heavy traffic for trial roads By JOEL MAXWELL CONTINUED Page 8 Large-scale preparatory work for the Kapiti expressway launches this Wednesday as three roads , needing 500 truckloads of sand and gravel, are built near Waikanae. Part of a two-year trial, the work will involve digging three pits in peat-land at the northern end of Greenhill Rd. They will be filled with locally sourced roading materials , which will then be compacted and used by NZ Transport Agency to deter- mine the best material for con- struction. The pits will require about 400 truckloads of sand and 100 truckloads of gravel -- about 12 trucks per hour between 8am and 5pm for five days spread over a fortnight, till mid-June. Resident Ian Daniel said the community only found out about the trial in the last fortnight, through letters from the agency. He was just appalled when he received the letter and was worried about safety on the nar- row road. Consent for the initial work had already been granted by Kapiti Coast District Council, the letter from project manager Jim Bentley stated. Mr Daniel said the size of the project was huge and essentially involved building test roads on the site. Most people understood this thing [the expressway] wasn t going to start till 2014. The trans- port agency said they re not starting construction -- that this is just a trial thing -- but of course this is [a kind of] bloody construc- tion. State highways manager Rod James said the project would cost about $80,000 from the existing budget for the expressway. Building roads in heavily peated conditions was not unusual in New Zealand and these conditions were managed by preloading the ground with heavy fill before construction , he said. The work will help us to identify innovative construction techniques to tailor to these par- ticular conditions, and . . . ensure the ground remains resilient in the event of an earthquake. He said truck drivers would be restricted to 50kmh and safety briefings would be held. Murder arrest made A Kapiti Coast resident was arrested on Wednesday in relation to the murder of a Hastings man last month. A 44-year-old former Hastings man appeared in Porirua District Court on Wednesday afternoon, charged with the mur- der of Douglas Bruce Apperley, 59, after he was found with stab wounds and head injur- ies on April 16 at his home. Detective Senior Sergeant Dave de Lange said the two men lived close to each other when the attack took place, but there did not appear to be a close association between them. The accused was granted name sup- pression on Wednesday, and was remanded in custody to reappear in Hastings District Court on May 31.He will undergo a psychological evalu- ation before his next appearance in court.
