Later in the Year: A Cracker of a Show!

4 & 5 Dec | The Turner Centre Kerikeri

Following on from The Wizard of Oz by our youth members in mid-October, The Stage Door Theatre Company are bringing you a laugh-a-minute comedy revue called ‘Christmas Cracker’ full of fun sketches! We’ll also be raising money for a very good cause – Mid-Northland Hospice from ticket sales.

Sketches include the failed dinner party, a typical evening with Netflix, an aging Romeo and Juliet, the Blind Date, Les Mis in 4 Minutes and plenty more.

Tickets are now on sale through iTicket and the Turner Centre Box Office. Two performances only, so don’t miss your chance for some festive fun.
