Jan Bolwell and Mona Williams combine forces in Once Upon a Dance, an hour long show which tells the story of their dancing lives.
Coming from different cultural and dancing backgrounds the pair from Crows Feet Dance Collective share their stories of growing up in different parts of the globe. They explain how dance influenced them and how they bonded over ballets such as The Nutcracker as well as many American Musicals.

However it's not all light and amusing. The pair have each faced their share of heartache, and aren't shying away from telling their stories.

ENTRY: $15 ($10 concessions). Book online HERE

Sun 11 MAR, 6.30-8.30pm
The Marriage of Figaro (Wanderlust Theatre, Wellington)

From the creative team behind the "witty and delightful" Cosi fan tutte - a SELL-OUT show at the Globe in 2016 ...
One of the most beloved operas of all time, Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro is set over the course of one crazy day in the household of Count Almaviva. Barber-turned-valet Figaro and his sassy fiancee, Susanna, join forces with the long-suffering Countess to outsmart their devious employer. This new sweetened and condensed adaptation by writer/soprano Georgia Jamieson Emms is performed in English and features a cast of singers from New Zealand Opera. Directed by Jacqueline Coats, this Figaro is innovative, economical, definitely a bit cheeky, yet preserves all the best bits of Mozart's masterpiece. Critics have called it “hilarious” and “sparkling with wit and ingenuity”.

ENTRY: $41 ($22 student, $20 school groups). Book online HERE.

Wed 14 MAR, 7.30-9.30pm
Chamber Music New Zealand: Anderson & Roe Piano Duo
Exploding genre boundaries, Anderson and Roe are as much at home with Mozart as they are with Daft Punk.

Tue 20 MAR, 7.30pm
The Spooky Men's Chorale
As thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks, the Spooky Men’s Chorale are the gift that keeps on giving. They emerged blithering and blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of NSW seventeen years ago and armed with no more than their voices, a nice line in deadpan and an ill-matched set of hats, have been gleefully disturbing audiences throughout Australia, NZ and the UK ever since.

Always renowned for a combination of Visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies in middle age, with five albums under their belt, are more masters of their territory than ever before. For this, their second New Zealand Tour, they will delicately garnish their much loved black-catalogue with further incursions into beauty and stupidity, somewhat like a chocolate muffin with bits of chocolate in it. You must see them, really you must.
ENTRY: $30 ($25 senior/student, $15 junior). Book online HERE.

Wed 21 MAR, 5.30pm-9.30pm

Manawatu Theatre Society: The Nether
It is the near future. The internet has evolved into the Nether - a system of pure freedom - a virtual wonderland that provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every desire. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers an interrogation into the darkest corners of the imagination.
Presented for the first time on a New Zealand stage, The Nether is both a serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams - a chilling look into an inevitable future, one that asks: can morality and laws be enforced in a world that doesn’t actually exist?

"This is mind-bending, it’s ingenious and it’s ethically challenging.”
The London Times
