Twelfth Night - Summer Shakespeare 2021

Round 3 of our Summer Shakespeare at Kainui Vineyard,

off the back of a hugely successful Romeo and Juliet in

2020 and A Midsummer Night's Dream in 2019.

Twelfth Night is a romantic comedy, believed to have

been written by the bard around 1601 as entertainment

for the close of the Christmas season. The play centres

on the twins, Viola and Sebastian, who are separated

in a shipwreck. Viola disguises herself as a young man

(Cesario) and finds work with Duke Orsino, who is in love

with the beautiful Countess Olivia. When Olivia meets

Cesario she falls in love with him, not realising he is a

young woman. Confusion ensues.

Mistaken identity is only one aspect of the play. It is used in several situations with an array of entertaining characters, along with music and riotous celebrations that go with the season. It is quite a romp!

The first recorded performance of Twelfth Night was on 2nd Feb 1602 and here it is, after 419 years, alive and thriving in Kerikeri.

The Sound of Music - Mid Winter Musical 2021

After much anticipation for another KTC musical theatre

showcase, we bring to you the much loved classic,

Rodgers and Hammersteins, The Sound of Music!

Set in Austria in the late 1930s, amidst the confusion

and disruption of the impending Anschluss, The Sound

of Music tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as

governess to a large family while she is trying to decide

whether to become a nun. She falls in love with the

seven children and eventually their widowed father,
Captain von Trapp. He is ordered to accept a

commission in the German navy, but he opposes the

Nazis. He and Maria work out a plan to flee Austria

with the children.

We never tire of hearing and singing the songs from The Sound of Music, and want to share our enjoyment of this heart-warming story with Kerikeri. Many aspects of it resonate with our times.

Performing at The Turner Centre 7th - 11th July 2021
