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.

Scoop Review Of Books: From Here And There

Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story

Game Over: Trans-Tasman Netball League To Discontinue

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
