Mousetrap is an
Art Deco catch
Wren and Jamie
Macphail as Mr
Paravicini, in The
Napier Repertory Players' 2012 Art Deco Pro-
duction is The Mousetrap, the classic murder-
mystery play by Agatha Christie.
Production manager Anne Corney says director
Nanette Wright has strictly followed the stage
directions and set design to reproduce the original
This is an exciting challenge for Andy Sinclair,
who is building the set, and Peter Hurley, who is
the lighting designer.''
The play centres on a group of strangers
stranded in a boarding house during a snowstorm,
one of whom is a murderer.
The suspects include the newly married couple
who run the house, a spinster with a curious back-
ground, an architect who seems better equipped to
be a chef, a retired army major, a strange little
man who claims his car has overturned in the
snow, and a jurist who makes life miserable for
everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman,
travelling on skis. He no sooner arrives than the
jurist is killed.
The policeman probes the background of every-
one present and rattles a lot of skeletons -- and
there is another famous Agatha Christie finish.
The play will run from February 16 to March 3
at The Little Theatre in McGrath St, Napier. For
booking information, contact Anne Corney on
Some of the best entries from the New Zealand
Geographic magazine's annual photography
competition are on show at Photographer's Gallery
in Tennyson St, Napier. Almost 3000 entries were
received in 2011 across the society and culture,
wildlife, landscape and photo story categories,
from experienced professionals, keen amateurs
and even a seven-year-old. The 2011 supreme
winner was Brett Phibbs, who was praised by
editor James Frankham for his dedication to
capturing emotion. ''He is a deserving winner in a
competition that puts greatest value on real
photographs of real life.'' Phibbs, who had worked
for the New Zealand Herald since 1993, won the
social and culture category for his photograph of a
young child in Samoa, and runner-up in the same
category for his image of a wet Anzac Day dawn
service at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.
The exhibition runs until Waitangi Weekend and
the gallery is open daily from 9am till 4pm. Also on
display at the Photographer's Gallery is a series of
underwater images from former Hawke's Bay
photographer Richard Robinson. Robinson, a New
Zealand Herald photographer, has a passion for
working ''beneath the surface'' and will be at the
gallery on Sunday, January 22, at 10am to give a
talk on his craft. Entry is by gold coin donation to
the National Aquarium of New Zealand.

Kiss me quick: Bryan Church, left, with Christine Heaney and Roy Brown, one of
the special guests at Creative Napier's Nostalgic Tribute to Elvis Presley.
Elvis fans get
their King hit
By CLAIRE HAMLIN
Since he first burst on to the Amer-
ican music scene in 1954, Elvis
Presley has inspired generations of
musicians and music lovers -- among
them BC and The Heartbreakers,
who will perform a free concert at
the Napier Soundshell on January
29.Vocalist Bryan Church is quick to
point out that he's no Elvis copycat.
I, along with all the band
members, have loved the music of
Elvis for many years, and we want
this concert to evoke memories of a
time and place in music history that
still captures the imagination of
young and old alike,'' Bryan says.
He's our connection with our own
youth. He taught us humility, gener-
osity and cool.
Elvis has an amazingly rich and
varied song list, and while we won't
have time to play them all, we hope
that people will hear their favourites
among the songs we've chosen.''
The idea for an Elvis tribute came
after a Valentine's Day concert
Bryan sang at last year. Towards the
end, he threw in'' some Presley
songs and the crowd responded by
getting up to dance.
We knew we were on to some-
thing then, so it was only a matter of
time before a tribute concert came
about,'' said Creative Napier com-
munity arts co-ordinator, Christine
In addition to the music, there
will be a display of Elvis-era cars,
and we would love for people to dress
in their best 50s rock n' rollin' style.''
Joining Church will be The Heart-
breakers; Al Dawson (guitar), Dennis
Maunder (drums), Marty Forrer
(double bass), Carmel (piano) and
Anton Wuts (saxophone), all well-
known and respected Hawke's Bay
musicians with a penchant for rock
The tribute show is an alcohol- and
