Open for showbiz

Mark Hamilton

THE days of Hervey Bay getting overlooked as a big entertainment events centre could well be over.

The recent expansion of the PCYC has now opened up the district to major show productions and the first is coming our way next month.

El Caballo Blanco, the world acclaimed dancing horses of Spain, has selected Hervey Bay as a key destination on its Australian tour and will be here for two shows on May 27.

The production features a cast of more than 20 performers, three semi-trailer loads of equipment, and more importantly, 12 specially trained dancing stallions.

Renowned master rider Rene Gasser takes credit for much of the production, drawing on seven generations of horsemanship to put together the spectacle.

"I train all the horses myself, the reaction of an audience is one of the best things, when you hear them go 'wow', I know I have done my job," he said.

Rene admitted the show was built for entertainment. The Spanish loved to excite, he said.

In the cast of more than 20, there are flamenco dancers, lighting specialist, audio professionals, and horse masters.

One of those masters stands atop the back of a pair of galloping beasts as they circle the arena.
