Mr Ogden has a range of local community, business and local experience that will be a real asset to the work of the committee, Mr Guy says. He was mayor from 2004 until last October and is now re-establishing himself in accountancy work. The Lottery Grants Board allocates the profits of lotteries such as Lotto, Lotto Strike, Instant Kiwi and Keno to 11 regional and nine national committees. The five-member Welling- ton/Wairarapa committee last year gave $2,345,860 to local projects. The Government s aim is to maximise the return to the community from the proceeds of gambling while minimising any associated harm. This committee helps fund valuable projects that make a real difference in the local community, said Mr Guy. The new members will serve until April 2014. Rocker based on opera Rocking La Boheme: The cast of RENT rehearse a scene for the show's season, which starts on Thursday and runs until May 28 at the Little Theatre. Set in New York's Lower East Side, it tells the story of of poor young artists and musicians living in the shadow of HIV/Aids. By LEE-ANNE EDWARDS Get ready to be rocked as the cast of RENT prepare for opening night on Thursday. The performers are mark- ing the Wellington premiere and 15th anniversary of Jonathan Larson s rock musical based on Puccini s La Boheme. Set in the slums of New York, RENT tells the story of ayearinthelifeofagroupof impoverished young artists and musicians and their struggles with sexuality, cross-dressing, drugs and life under the shadow of Aids. Presented by Speakeasy Theatre Ltd, led by director Stuart James, the Hutt pro- duction plays at the Little Theatre from May 19 to 28. The music is poetically beautiful and exquisitely written, James says. Creat- ed for and by [young artists] and performed by young art- ists who can directly identify with its style and story. The Speakeasy team is particularly keen to target a younger audience. To achieve this we are offering $20 front-row tickets to anyone who turns up at the theatre and registers their names any time before the show on the day. First in, first served. That s half price. A labour of love for Larson, he slaved for years to see it performed on stage. The night before his dream be- came a reality, he died from an undiagnosed heart con- dition.
