The Auckland Arts Festival are delighted to be presenting an amazing spine-chilling theatre work called Horror at the next Festival next March.
Horror pays homage to the classic horror movies like The Exorcist and Evil Dead, and uses mime, illusion and amazing special effects (lots of blood splatter and crawling dismembered hands etc) in a show that is both gruesome and scary, but also a bit funny.
The event listing in the Festival programme can be found here and includes a video trailer which gives you a good idea of the show.
The Facebook event page is here.
And both places give exact dates, ticket prices, booking info etc. Group bookings start at only 6 people, so it would make a great outing for a bunch of horror fans, or Christmas presents for any hard-to-buy-for teens or anything….
Venture outer space these school holidays
What happens when you cross a psychedelic band, video art, and a theatre show? An innovative and interactive musical experience for the whole family.
The theme is pairs so be prepared to move through space with myriad objects including dancing lips, giant eyeballs and aliens that all come in pairs.
Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna

Titirangi Theatre, Auckland
8 – 19th March 2016
“Alle Thee Dysk’s a Stage”
Sir Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then turns it up ’till the knob comes off. It’s all there—a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril.
And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, selfopinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

Don’t miss the opportunity to see the sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey on the magnificent big screen this Autumn!
The film charts the “progress of ‘civilisation’ through the influence of mysterious black monoliths on prehistoric apes developing their skills and, later, on astronauts involved in a secret mission to Jupiter” describes Geoff Andrew of the British Film Institute. “A cinematic milestone, and a huge influence on the development of the sci-fi genre.”
Philosophically ambitious, technically innovative and visually stunning, Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi epic demands the biggest screens on earth!
