OUR UPCOMING SHOWS
Romeo and Juliet
Summer Shakespeare at Kainui Road Vineyard
After rave reviews from the 2019 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, we are back in 2020 in association with Kainui Road Vineyard, to bring a magical outdoor event under the twilight and set against the vines, supping a delicious craft beer or a tasty glass of Kainui Rd vino. Bring the family, a picnic dinner and enjoy some well-crafted theatre by some of Kerikeri's most exciting performing arts practitioners.
Romeo & Juliet is one of Shakespeare's most well-known works, and tells the story of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, naive, young lovers from feuding families who fight to uphold their love for one another. With twists of love, hate and revenge (and the scaling of a balcony), the story ends in tragedy but not without some poignant messages that transcend generations.
Directing for Kerikeri Theatre Company, Janna Sicely has taken from both the historical and modern context, collaborating with Artistic Designer, Kylie Penn, Music Composer, Suzie Hurd and Lighting Designer, Justin Timms in the creation of a thrilling and visually stunning production with exciting live music.
Tickets available from iticket from 30th November.
Under 18: $25.00
Premiere (couch seating for 4 under marquee, antipasto platter and drink on arrival) : $240.00
KTC Film Night
at Cathay Cinemas, Kerikeri
The Kerikeri Theatre Company (KTC) is proud to screen three new short narrative films - all made in the Far North of New Zealand.
The first screening of all the films is at Cathay Cinemas in Kerikeri on Tuesday 26th November at 5pm sharp - with a second screening of all films at 6pm sharp.
All proceeds from this event will go towards future productions - both on stage and on-screen - and will help us maintain our rehearsal/performance space at Sammaree Place in Kerikeri.
The 40-minute programme will feature:
1) The world premiere of JOEY’S FILM - an 12-minute student horror film - written, directed and acted by students from Kerikeri High School and Springbank School. The young actors and the film’s director, Casey Roberts, are part of the KTC’s Youth Theatre programme. Please note: this film has a dark undertone, so may not be suitable for younger members of the audience.
2) The big-screen premiere of the music clip of NZ singer/songwriter Jan Hellriegel’s song ‘High Maintenance Man’. The clip was directed by 16-year old Casey Roberts, one of the rising stars of the Kerikeri Theatre Company, and features Kerikeri and Kaikohe locals in the cast. Song courtesy of Songbroker.co.nz
3) An encore screening of MIDRIFF - a 20-minute comedy/drama - written, directed and acted by alumni of the Kerikeri Theatre Company. This film won Best Film (Open Fiction) and Best Narrative in the 2019 Northland Film Competition in Dargaville, and was officially selected as a Finalist in the 2019 Oaxaca FilmFest in Mexico. It stars Makareta Umbers, Willi Henley and Adam Parmenter.
