Yes, it will be pantomime again this December (Oh no it won’t ! – Oh yes it will !) when the Stage Door serves up another fun-filled fantasy. This year it’s that tale of the Princess who falls asleep after pricking her hand on a spindle,cursed by the wicked witch.Then she is woken up by the kiss of a Prince.
There are lots of great parts, of course. Many of which have never been heard of in the original version! Plus music and song (and a little choreography too!).
Auditions will be on 8 September, 2pm at the Turner Centre. Performances at the Turner Centre December 13-15.

CALENDAR GIRLS | AUG 1 – 4 | The Turner Centre
Here are some photos from last night’s Tech Rehearsal. It’s been hard work, but so much fun too, and we’ve seen a lot of each other… in more ways than one! Now all we need is an audience, and that’s where you come in :
We’ve got two tickets to give away for our opening night on THURSDAY 1st AUGUST at The Turner Centre.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
Identify 5 of the businesses we have used for our calendar photo shoots, and go in the draw to win free tickets.
We have our very own Kerikeri Calendar Girls calendar, and each page has been sponsored by some lovely local businesses. While some photos have been taken at private residences, we have used many of the businesses as location for the photos themselves, and we’ve been blogging about each photo shoot on our website. Read our blog posts to find the business names.
The Final Shoot: We gathered at Jo’s house, the fire was warm, the wine was ready and the piano was waiting for today’s model.
I can’t believe it’s all over. It’s been a lot of work, but such a lot of fun too, with some very brave ladies. I hope we manage to raise some funds for the Stage Door’s chosen charity with our calendar sales.
The calendar is on sale now around Kerikeri. It’s a great way to support both our community and a very worthwhile cause. A donation from the proceeds of the sale of the calendar will go to NZ Child Cancer Foundation, and this is also a great way of celebrating the ladies in our community. Each month is sponsored by a local business and we thank them for their support. Most, but not all, of our models also appear in the Play. The sponsor for this month is Kainui Vineyard
Shoot # 12. The Christmas Shot! One more shot left to go after this one. My gosh, I’m going to miss these lovely ladies.
This is the penultimate blog of the shoot of the Calendar for the Play ‘ Calendar Girls’, being put on by Stage Door Theatre Company this August.
