The Rock n Roll Circus Is Heating Up Your Wintery Nights

The Rock n Roll Circus Is Heating Up Your Wintery Nights

Newton, Auckland – 12 July 2014, Aloha! 1950 was one of our most popular shows in our 2012 season so we’ve revamped it and bought it back for another round of vintage beach party fun in July!

Aloha! 1950 will see seasoned burlesque and cabaret performers and rising talent strut their stuff on stage as part of a fun show with a vintage beach party flavour. With a bumping and grinding mix of booty shakin’, tassel twirling and fire entertainment, this show is sure to leave your loins ablaze.

Hosting the night is the feisty Miss Elvis, Auckland’s only female Elvis impersonator. She is joined by a cast of local talent including international burlesque artiste Amourous Ava who is recently back from performing in the Australian Burlesque Festival.

The audience is encouraged to dress up in theme and even take to the stage to try their hand at a bit of burlesque. We have prizes from Rita Sue Clothing and Wendy Syme Costumier to give away on the night and tickets for our final show of 2014 up for grabs.

With acts by some award winning and international burlesque performers this show is going to go off with a bang!

Tickets are available through www.eventfinder.co.nz.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.

Would it be any harder these days, for the US government to destroy the career of a famous American entertainer and disappear them from history – purely because of their political beliefs? You would hope so. In 1940, Paul Robeson – a gifted black athlete, singer, film star, Shakespearean actor and orator – was one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. More>>
