St Peter's College biennial production - Strength of a Hero
After hearing the incorrect story from two slightly hopeless tour guides in an Ancient Greek Museum, Five Muses welcome you on a light hearted journey of discovery, courage and love, as we tell the unerring story of our hero, the mighty god Hercules. 

In Strength of a Hero, Hercules (the son of Zeus) was snatched as a baby by Hades (Lord of the Underworld), and forced to live life on Earth among mortals as a half-man, half-god. Hercules soon discovers his immortal heritage and uncovers that he must become a true hero in order to reunite with his parents on Mount Olympus.With help from Chiron (the trainer of heroes) and guidance from Athena (the goddess of wisdom), Hercules prepares to face many challenges and obstacles on his quest ahead.

ENTRY: Book online HERE or at the Globe Box Office.

Fri 29 JUNE, 7.30 pm: Alliance Francaise pressents PRIMAIRE

Monthly French films (with English subtitles) generally on the last Friday of each month. 

Hot on the heels of its recent January release in France, this is a vivacious and emotionally gripping story of a teacher caught between passion for her students and love for her child. Devoted primary school-teacher Florence (an inspired performance by Sara Forestier, Suzanne) is a single mother who pours her heart and soul into her students each and every day. When she encounters the disruptive student Sacha and finds he has been abandoned by his mother, Florence devotes herself to helping him. While director Hélène Angel superbly contrasts the entertaining energy and colour of the classroom with the lonely and confused world of Sacha, Forestier delivers a magnificent performance as a woman unwilling to compromise her morals, resulting in a remarkably honest, optimistic and engrossing portrayal of school life.

FREE entry (donations welcome). Licensed bar/cafe open from 6.00 pm, film starts at 8.00 pm. More information HERE

Fri 6 - Sat 7 JUL
Super Hugh-Man
Super Hugh-Man is an award-winning autobiographical solo cabaret by acclaimed Kiwi entertainer Rutene Spooner, a musical love letter to the great Wolverine and Broadway star, Hugh Jackman.

Spooner takes us on his personal journey growing up as a young Māori boy in Gisborne, and the fateful events that lead to the discovery of his hero's secret identity. Stepping us through his implausible path to becoming a musical theatre performer – from high school kapa haka misfit to unexpected NASDA alumnus – we see the profound impact that Hugh plays in his life.

Embracing the qualities that both Hugh Jackman and Wolverine possess helps Spooner get through rough patches of feeling like an outsider wanting to fit into a world that he has no blueprint for. He comes to realise that it's OK to be a different kind of man – that he can be strong AND sensitive, he can haka AND high kick, be fierce AND fabulous.

Directed by NZ theatre veteran Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Super Hugh-Man is a shamelessly charming and heartfelt story, intricately weaving together comedy, dance, kapa haka and song into a stunning show.

ENTRY: Book online HERE or at the Globe Box Office.

Fables/Albi & The Wolves
West Auckland Folk Band Fables produce a gentle and heartfelt indie-folk sound which could warm even the coldest of hearts. Jess Bailey’s childhood was spent on twenty-one acres of land in the outskirts of Auckland. She was taught by the Mackenzie Hills of the south Kaipara, dredged in the waters of Muriwai Beach then hung out to dry in the plum trees at home. This imagery is littered throughout the bands wistful lyrics and authentic songs. The small ensemble has shared the stage with modern folk notables Great North, The Remarkables, Chris Preistley and Nadia Reid, with performances at the home of Auckland folk, The Bunker. Jess Bailey’s velveteen voice intermingled with a collection of strings and other harmonies should find you quite at home. Coming to the Globe with Albi & the Wolves - folk music, but not as you know it. Pulling inspiration from a wide spectrum of genres, from swing to bluegrass, soul, r&b, rock and world music, Albi & The Wolves offer a decadent serving of double bass, guitar, and violin accompanied by Albi's smooth vocal style. These elements come together to create both a potent foot stomping rhythm and a captivating music and stage presence never experienced before.
