Part Three

DOROTHYWhat is this place? Wait… it looks just like Oz!
TOTOThe place with man-eating sharks and killer spiders?
DOROTHYNo not Australia, Toto. ‘Oz’, as in ‘The Wizard of Oz’.
TOTOYou mean the place with flying monkeys and evil witches?

In Which Dorothy and Toto Find a Fun Thing to Do

Part One

DOROTHYToto, I can’t think of anything to do. Nothing ever happens around here. We haven’t even had a decent tornado to hide from in ages.
TOTOOoh, I’ve thought of something!
DOROTHYThis better be good… And nothing to do with bones…
TOTOThe WIZARD OF OZ is coming to The Turner Centre, Kerikeri, in exactly ONE MONTH! Let’s book some tickets!
DOROTHYWell, that is a wonderful idea, Toto! You know how much I’d love to see The Wizard!

Thanks from Shrek and the Gang!

We wanted to say a huge thank you to the 1198 people who came to watch Shrek the Musical! The cast and crew had such a great time putting this show on for you! We learnt so much during this amazing journey and it was so exciting to hear you singing along to the finale. Thank you to everyone that put their heart and soul into this exceptional show.

Shrek the Musical Starts on Thursday!

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…”

Thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside an overexcited Donkey to rescue a spirited princess. Throw in the vertically-challenged Lord Farquaad, a cookie with an attitude, a puppet with a bad habit and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero.

The Stage Door is excited to present Shrek The Musical at the Kerikeri Turner Centre from May 16th to 19th, 2019.

A Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all-new songs from Jeanine Tesori and the side-splitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears. Originally produced on Broadway by DreamWorks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions and originally directed by Jason Moore and Rob Ashford.

From the theatre company that brought you Robin Hood and the Babes in the wood, an incredibly talented local Artistic team and over 50 local actors this amazing show is not to be missed!
