What's Good this Week : : Theatre & Cinema

18- 24 Jan


Theatre returns! Auckland’s Shakespeare’s in the Park is underway at the Pumphouse Theatre in Takapuna. Two plays in rep – King Lear and The Tempest – it is a bit unclear from the booking information which one you are going to get, or indeed both, but if the weather is kind it would be magical out under the stars either way.


Otherwise, there is not a lot. The Basement, Q Theatre and Skycity Theatre open in February, and the Maidment and Musgrove have been shut. Te Pou are running kid’s shows from Saturday, though – Moana and the Taniwha – suitable for five year olds and up.


However, there is a LOT of free stuff going on outdoors. This week’s free Friday film at Silo Park is the double feature of The Endless Summer and Endless Summer II. This year, the Movies in Parks series are incredibly small child focused, but if the Penguins of Madagascar are your bag then head to David Lange Park in Mangere on Friday, or Pitch Perfect 2 at Little Shoal Bay Reserve on Saturday. Both start when it gets dark, so the not so child-friendly time of 8.40pm.


Perhaps better to focus on the music. The Music in Parks programme and Auckland Live’s Summer in the Square programme include pop, jazz, opera, and everything else, with a swing dancing band in Aotea Square on Saturday. Then there are night markets at Silo, and the free Federal Street Summer Festival with music kicking off Friday (4-10pm) and Saturday (2-10pm). Enjoy.

    As a deaf dog owner and trainer of many years, I want to make things simple for as
    many people (and dogs. Article Source: hundreds more articles like this at
    – where you can unique dog supplies like fleece dog coats,
    elevated feeders, and more cool dog gear that you’ll
    never find at your local pet store. If your pup starts to jump for the treat, hold it lower so
    that jumping isn’t necessary.
