Interested in acting? Want to brush up your skills? Stage Door launch Academy Plus.
As a result of demand, the Stage Door Theatre Company is launching a theatre experience for adults. Known as Academy Plus, it features classes by experts in acting, character, improvisation, stage movement, microphone technique, stage make-up and more.
The first of these takes place the weekend of September 14 and 15 from 10am to 4pm at Northtec, Kerikeri. Fee is $100 for the two days.
Following the outstanding successes of Shrek the Musical and Calendar Girls, we have had interest from more adults who haven’t been on stage since school, or who never have been, but who now want to be involved in our sort of community theatre here. This is for them and for our existing adult ensemble. It’s going to be a fun learning experience.

A heart-warming, funny and moving play that has toured around the world and raised money for many Cancer charities, Calendar Girls is inspired by a true story. When the husband of a Yorkshire Women’s Institute member falls ill with cancer, the group are determined to raise money for a new sofa in the hospital waiting room. But how? A calendar, and not just any calendar!
The loveable cast of mature ladies decide to be bold and go nude for their cause, and they consequently take not only Yorkshire by storm, but the whole world! With fun, frolics and poignant scenes, this feel-good play has everything.
The Charity of Our Choice
The Stage Door Theatre Company have chosen the NZ Child Cancer Foundation as the recipient of $5 from every ticket sale.
Our Own Calendar : On Sale in July
On top of that, Stage Door are producing their very own calendar! The Kerikeri Calendar Girls Calendar, kindly funded by local businesses and photographed by Flash Gordon Photography @Take Five Agency, will be available to purchase before, during and after the show from their photo shoot locations around town, and with a donation of each sale also going to the NZ Child Cancer Foundation.
Win Two Tickets
Alongside the calendar, we’ll be running a series of blog posts, one for each month of the calendar, over the next two months. If you can correctly guess the public locations used for the calendar photography, you’ll go into a draw to WIN TWO TICKETS to the show.
