3 February 2001
On the 3rd of February 2001 Lucy Lawless and Kevin Smith hosted a magnificent show called Skycity Starlight Symphony at the Auckland Domain.
The goal was to collect donations for Kidz First and Stasrship Hospital. This was outlined by Michael Hirst [see picture] who made a short speech making people aware of the importance of this project.
There were about 288 volunteers, collecting and selling Glow-Sticks and Glow-Necklaces at a whopping five dollars each. Lucy Lawless wore a gold plated [curly shaped platelets] dress over black material. Kevin Smith wore a tuxedo and basically looked as cheeky as ever making the odd joke here and there. At one point Lucy reminded him it was his turn with the cue cards [see picture].
I think the highlight of the evening was a preview of 'Hair', full version to be shown at Sky City Theatre between 16 November-15 December.
