IN CASE you have not noticed, the '70s are back in full swing, and the Entertainment Company is hosting a '70s dance extravaganza starring those fabulous funky divas The Three Degrees on May 30 at the Hongkong Convention and Exhibition Centre. All proceeds from the $250 tickets will be donated to a fund for leukaemia patient Caroline Miller, a former production manager of the Entertainment Company, and a singer with local band Soul Commotion. The Three Degrees are best known for their dance hits of the '70s, including When Will I See You Again, which topped the world's charts. Prizes will be given for the best '70s gear, and guest DJs expect the disco inferno to rage into the night. For information, call 541-3690. Meanwhile, the new and improved Shadowboxers will be making an appearance at the Fringe on Saturday. The band, which previously consisted of Neil Harris and Gerard Tannam, thought hiring drummer Jerry Strachan and guitarist Jon Noble would be a good idea. Together, they will show their versatility with their original brand of house music. Tickets are $40 and available at the Fringe. The Walt Disney Company is paving the way for its latest hit release on July 15, the feature-length animated film Aladdin, with merchandising galore. Consumers can expect to see a range of products hitting the shelves in the next two weeks, when 20 licensees will introduce items including stationery, watches, T-shirts, and decorative cushions. An Aladdin bazaar in Tai Koo Shing's City Plaza will help with the hype this summer. The biggest bet for Disney winning over the local market, though, is the release of a Cantonese version of the soundtrack by various Hongkong singers, whose identities have yet to be disclosed, available next month.
