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.

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.
