Friday 8 February
Top Dog Theatre Open Air Shakespeare: Twelfth Night
Until Sunday 17 February
Monday–Saturday, 6pm
Sundays, 1pm
The Mound Lawn, Mona Vale
Ticket Price: $15 / $10

In its ninth year of delighting Christchurch with summer Shakespeare, Top Dog Theatre brings you Twelfth Night. This witty and colourful play is one of Shakespeare’s most well-loved and relatable comedies. Full of cross-dressing, love triangles and class rivalries, this production is full of 1920s charm and style.

Set in the idyllic Mona Vale gardens, this is a chance to lay out the picnic rug and soak up the early evening sun. The show will cater to young and old; as this is Shakespeare in its most viewer-friendly form!

Bond Street Bridge is where Sam Prebble, of the Broken Heartbreakers and the Reb Fountain Band, gets to break out from the mould and play his own style of music: selections from an Antarctic song cycle inspired by the exploits of Scott and Shackleton, favourites from 2011's Spring Summer Awesome Winter and newer material. Accompanied by glitchy beats, a fair bit of strings and a surprising amount of cinematic pomp and circumstance.

These events are all part of the Garden City SummerTimes festival. For more information please visit summertimes.co.nz.
