Relive the Glamour of the Great Gatsby

Relive the Glamour of the Great Gatsby

A Christmas party like never before
Tickets on sale next week

Mention the name Gatsby and it conjures images of parties, excesses of every kind, glamour, glitz and a society fuelled by impulse and desire.

It was 1920s New York and Gatsby’s parties were legendary.

That legend continues this Christmas in New Zealand with a cabaret show that recreates the hedonism of the Gatsby era with “wild parties” in venues around New Zealand. A sumptuous cabaret inspired by the great American novel of 1925.

The Great Gatsby Christmas Party Revue will feature – comedy, singing, dancing and performing songs reminiscent of the 1920s when everyone was makin’ whoopee, dancing the Charleston or doing the Boogie Woogie! Book a party, dress up and celebrate like it's 1925! Discounted tickets for groups of 6 or more.

The master of ceremonies will be actor and all round funnyman Rutene Spooner – himself often mistaken for Gatsby!!

Earn the “legend’s badge” at your office or social club with a night out at The Great Gatsby Christmas Party Revue. Dining and antipasto packages will be available at selected venues.

My time working on the next.
