What's Good This Week : : Theatre & Cinema

Shakespearean actor and acclaimed playwright, Tim Crouch, is on for one week only from 8-12 December at the Musgrove Theatre in his one man show I, Peaseblossom, a deliciously funny look at A Midsummer Night’s Dream.


Theatre Wack also continues to offer up revamped versions of classic theatre, in this case, Restoration comedy The Rover, by Aphra Behn, adapted by Nathan Joe and opening in the Tiny Theatre at Garnet Station on Thursday for two weeks.


If you want to mix it up a little, then you can get your jingle on at Q Theatre on Queen Street, who are offering a selection of music, comedy and poetry (and booze) from now until 19 Dec. Wednesday 9th sees Sam Hunt doing a selection of poetry old and new. Thursday 10th you get Into the East, Aaron Carpenter and the Revelators, and The Nukes; Friday night, it is the turn of Nathan Haines singing with The Little Big Band, and on Saturday, Julia Deans, Anna Coddington and Anthonia Tonnon.


Summer in the [Aotea] Square has also begun offering a daily dose of music and entertainment  through the summer which is curated by Golden Dawn’s Matthew Crawley and is free, hurrah. This week, look out for DJ Stinky Jim on Wednesday and StarJam on Thursday, also, Life of Colour – a large scale (but short – only 13 minutes) dance piece originally created for the World of Wearable Arts Awards, involves 25 Unitec students and will fill Aotea Square with movement and colour between 12pm and 1pm every day this week.


Also good news for those on a budget, Saturday Night sees Christmas in the Park at the Domain from 7pm to 10pm, also free, so get there early to mark your territory with a picnic rug and lots of food and drink to see you through the evening.


On Friday there is a free screening of Elf at Silo Park at 9pm. There are food markets too on Wednesday night, Friday night, and through the weekend. And if you can’t get enough of markets, there will be a Britomart Day Out from 8am to 1pm with sales, specials, market stalls and more live entertainment.


Meanwhile, for guaranteed laughs, Jesus Christ Part II is a very funny musical/satire/improv night at the Basement, and Hudson & Halls Live – Parker and Emerson brilliantly immortalise the famous kiwi TV chefs in front of a ’live studio audience’ – finishes its run at the Herald Theatre. Finally, also ending this week is the visual feast of a circus show from Dust Palace – Ithaca at Q.

    If George really wanted to get Lillard back, his best option is to just wait until next season and hope he can get revenge on the Trail Blazers. It takes time to come back after losing like that.
