Ex-Christchurch-boy Rutene Spooner, a graduate of the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Arts based in Christchurch, will join an all-male cast for It’s Rainin’ Men.
Rutene is a Christchurch local, an excellent performer and a first class tap dancer. A graduate of the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Arts, his passion lies in musical theatre but he has been performing professionally throughout New Zealand as a singer, actor and dancer. Since graduating, Rutene has performed to some of New Zealand’s largest audiences, being featured as a soloist in TV3s Coca Cola Christmas in the Park and also performing with the likes of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.
Rutene is joined by Operatunity Principal Artist Bonaventure Allan-Moetaua, and singers Rory Nolan and Cameron Barclay (the only Kiwi member of The 10 Tenors). Together they’ll perform music from the original boy bands like The Beatles, The Temptations, Simon & Garfunkel, The Platters and other hits from Bobby Darin, Billy Joel, Frank Sinatra and more! Songs will include classic hits like My Girl, Fever, Unchained Melody, Dream Lover, I Will Always Love You, and My Way. The boys will bring amazing harmonies and fun just like shows of the past, and they’ll definitely all be wearing their dancing shoes.
