aNDREW LLOyD WEBBER MUSIC aT ITS fINEST When Showbiz Christchurch wrapped up the 2018 season of Broadway Hitmen, they knew from audience feedback there was a great desire to hear more music from composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. The upcoming concert The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber was devised by Lloyd Webber himself. Showbiz Christchurch is renowned for producing shows that could easily be at home on Broadway or the West End. The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber is proving to be even more popular than recent Showbiz concerts, with the Grand Circle of the Isaac Theatre Royal recently opened for sale for those who weren’t quick enough to purchase tickets when they went on sale at the end of last year. Each musical vignette from The Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Whistle Down the Wind, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Song and Dance, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar and Starlight Express features between two and four songs performed by a full 33 piece on-stage orchestra – the CSO. They’ll be sharing the stage with 14 soloists from amongst Canterbury’s top performers – some wellknown to Christchurch audiences and some new talent. There will also be a 30 strong on-stage chorus, 21 ballet, Latin and musical theatre dancers, and a children’s chorus from Impact Dance and Stage School who will perform numbers from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Whistle Down the Wind. “Some parts of the show will have 90 people on stage at one time,” says Stage Manager Mandy Perry who will be supported by a team of Assistant Stage Managers to help coordinate such a big cast. The set will feature a series of asymmetrical raised platforms for the orchestra designed by David Bosworth of 4th Wall Theatre Services, and a concave cyclorama which will provide a canvas for lighting designer Grant Robertson of The Light Site. “Everybody that’s working on the show is really going to get a chance to show off!” says Atlas “It will be gorgeous.” INfOS aND BOOkINgS • 7:30pm Friday 14 & Saturday 15 June.

UNDERSTaNDINg CaPaCITy 8 lAw living life PUZZle As lawyers, we are required to meet with you and take your instructions in order to help you complete the particular legal task you are planning. Sometimes when we do this, we need to take a little extra time to consider your mental capacity to make decisions. Mental capacity is a client’s capacity to make a decision. Decision making requires that a client: • understands the decision they are having to make • can discuss with us the possible options available to them in a way that shows they appreciate the risk and or benefit of those options • understands the impact that a decision, or the lack of a decision, may have on them or their loved ones • is able to articulate and discuss all of the above with us. It is important to note that the level of capacity required isn’t the same in every situation. For example, to make a Will, the legal test is whether the client knows they are making a Will and the effect of doing so, whether they understand the extent of the assets they are dealing with, whether they comprehend the moral claims which they ought to give effect to, and finally whether they are free of any disorders of the mind that could distort their decisionmaking. However, when giving instructions to complete Enduring Powers of Attorney, the test is lower and is satisfied if a client understands the broad consequences of granting an enduring power of attorney and can process the relevant information and appreciate the nature and effect of the power they are giving. Having these discussions with our clients is difficult. It can be very confronting, both for our clients and for us. In a worst case scenario, our clients can be very offended by us questioning their capacity. This is not our intention. Our intention is to ensure that the legal outcome our clients have set out to achieve, has the best possible opportunity to succeed. We are aware that if there is a likelihood that our client’s decision might be challenged, one of the first questions that may be raised is whether our client had the capacity required to make the decision in the first place. The best way of mitigating this risk is to undertake a capacity assessment prior to completing your legal work with your health professional. It is best that the assessment be scheduled as close as possible to the appointment to complete the legal work required. At Harmans we have a specialist seniors team to help you through the process of setting up your legal deeds and dealing with any queries you may have. Contact Phillipa Shaw on 352-2293 to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation.
