Photo: FIONA GOODALL By KRISTINA RAPLEY Playing several different characters in one play isn't easy. Howick resident Jenna Eastwood has discovered this in her debut per- formance for Howick Little Theatre's new play Four Flat Whites In Italy. The play is set in Italy and follows two mature couples making their way through the vibrant city. No holiday from hell would be complete with- out a few hiccups along the way making for a very entertaining jour- ney. Miss Eastwood plays a few different background characters including a Venetian, grumpy Ital- ian waitress, and a posh villa owner. It's been quite chal- lenging,'' she says. They are only small roles though so it's been fun getting to dress up in all the different cos- tumes.'' Written by Roger Hall and directed by Rae McGregor the play is a comedy but has a few touching moments. I think people will be very amused, but also leave with a bit of a tear in their eye,'' Mrs Mc- Gregor says. Four Flat Whites In Italy runs until Decem- ber 4 at Howick Little Theatre, Sir Lloyd Drive, Lloyd Elsmore Park, Pakuranga. Call 534- 1406 or visit www.hlt. org.nz for more infor- mation.

Each year thousands of children send their wish lists to Santa so they can be delivered to the North Pole. New Zealand Post urges adults helping children write the letters to make sure there's a return address on the letter, including the cor- rect postcode and that they are sent by Decem- ber15togetareplyby Christmas Day. As usual Santa is keen to hear how children have been good during the year and which pres- ents they are hoping to receive. Letters can be posted in the usual way or dropped off in special mailboxes in PostShop stores. Santa's address is: Mr Santa Claus Santa's Workshop North Pole 0001 Online messages can be sent to www.nzpost. co.nz/christmas. Six tragedies on water last month Six people lost their lives in drowning incidents last month. All were males and four were aged over 70. Alcohol was a con- tributing factor in two of the drownings. The toll so far this year has risen to 65. Despite this year's toll being down on the five-year average of 86 it is disappointing to see inappropriate behaviour being the cause of the majority of these deaths,'' Water Safety New Zealand general manager Matt Claridge says. Any water-based activity carries risk and people, especially those of advanced years, need to understand this and act accordingly. It is simply too dangerous to undertake recreational activity in the water alone when there is no one to hear a cry for help or assist in a emergency.''
