MMC to celebrate its biggest event WORLD ON STAGE on 30 June 2023

Manawatu Multicultural Council (MMC) will celebrate its WORLD ON STAGE 2023, on Friday 30th June 2023 at 6:30PM, at the Regent on Broadway, the grand theatre in Palmerston North.

The World on Stage 2023 will celebrate the wonderful diverse cultures of Palmerston North city through music, storytelling, dance, and song. As MMC celebrates its 30th Anniversary in 2023, the event will present the effervescent, colourful, and vibrant show – as we embrace our WORLD at the grand Regent theatre on Broadway.

The World on Stage 2023 will follow a story of a young girl in search of answers about her heritage and ancestry. Her journey through the different continents will be shown and performances from various parts of the world will be screened on the night. The whole programme has been written and will be directed by Phil Anstis, an actor, director and motion capture performer.

Though the stage programme starts at 6:30 pm, there will be street performances beginning at 6.00pm as well as cultural displays at the Regent’s balcony. At around 9PM, World on Stage will finish on the street with the dynamic rhythms of Brazilian inspired Samba Ao Vento – a time for all the guests to dance!
