THE AUCKLAND PRIDE GALA 2014

Le Jeu de Méchant – The Wicked Game

Auckland Pride Festival 2014 Official Opening

The Auckland Pride Gala pops the champagne-cork this Feb 7th to toast the start of the fortnight long Auckland Pride Festival 2014.

Raise your glasses, as we announce that the magnificent Alison Mau will be hosting the premiere, black tie, dress-up occasion in the glamorous surroundings of the recently refurbished Q Theatre.

This year’s Gala is being directed by award-winning director, writer and actor Lexie Matheson to recapture the magic of the fin de siècle cabaret scene in pre-war Europe.

Le Jeu de Méchant – The Wicked Game will preview the very best of the 2014 Auckland Pride Festival in all its rainbow-coloured facets. It’s a sampler of treats to tempt and tantalize, a supreme distillation of talent, and a dazzling display of theatrical diversity!

The evening will feature special Gala guest performances to thrill and delight from sensual circus-theatre company The Dust Palace, as well as the return of everybody’s favourite erotic burlesque troupe, In Flagrante.

Provocative performers from the 2014 festival programme will include Charlotte Yates,Mika and the fabulous Kita Mean, plus seductive excerpts from Songs For GuyQueenby Sam Brooks and The Legacy Project.

With more climaxes than a summer romance, The Auckland Pride Gala is a fantastic opportunity to experience the artists, performers, events and entertainment within this year’s Auckland Pride Festival.

Join Auckland Pride Festival as they launch into February’s fabulous month of queer culture and celebration. They want you play the game – the wicked game!
