Four Friends and a Funeral - Tama's Tangi

FRI 27 NOVEMBER, 7:30PM

Four friends, having lost contact with one another in recent years, arrive back in their little community for Tama’s funeral. Over the few days of Tama's tangi the friends reminisce on the fun times they shared together with Tama. But the reunion also presents an opportunity to reflect on decisions made to move away in search of futures that have still not been realised. The lure of home, reconnecting with friends and tending to unfinished matters raises questions about what matters most in life and the meaning of true friendship. Talented singers and comedic sketches will ensure the audience is well entertained by a story that also includes important messages for us all.

Featuring new talents: Kauri Waerea, Peti Nohotima, Rongomai Taiapa-Aporo, Hana Grace Tamatea, Tia Toa Te Mata-Frost, Michael Rongo and Te Hemara Rauhihi.

Writer Eljon Fitzgerald

ENTRY: Admission $20 available HERE or at the Globe Theatre Box Office

Tall Poppies presents Mr Benn

MON 30 NOVEMBER & TUES 1 DECEMBER, 7:00PM

First seen on television on 25 February 1971, Mr Benn lived at 52 Festive Road, London, and was the ultimate Mr Nice Guy in a bowler hat.

But whenever he entered a mysterious costume shop, (where the shopkeeper always arrived “as if by magic”) and tried on a costume, Mr Benn inevitably stepped out of the changing room (through “the door that always led to adventure”) into a different time and place appropriate to his apparel.

In the Tall Poppies production, Mr Benn and his assistant, Mr Pen, now own the mysterious costume shop and the play is centred around Miss Celia Apple – a school-teacher. Mr Pen and Mr Benn have a cat, Whiskers, who causes Celia many problems in her adventures through the “changing room door”.

Celia goes into an Axis Legends video game, onto a magnificent film-set filled with high-status characters and into an alleyway of gang cats.

It'll be fun for all the family!!

St John Fundraiser: "Nigel Latta Presents: Adventures in Parentland"

THURS 3rd DEC 2020, 7:30PM

"The St John Ambulance service in Palmerston North currently has 3 ambulances operating during the day and 2 operating at night to ensure we can provide emergency medical care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to Palmerston North and the surrounding communities. 

We need to build the new station on Willis Street to help with the increase in demand for our service. Since 2013 there has been a 20% increase in the number of call outs attended by our ambulances. Without the ambulance service in Palmerston North, we simply would not be able to respond to people with life threatening injuries or conditions and urgently dispatch the care and treatment needed. 

With your support attending this fundraising event, we can ensure that all proceeds go towards Palmerston North having a world-class Ambulance service." - St. John

Happy, healthy, confident children is something all parents want .. but getting there is sometimes a bit challenging. While we might be the same humans we've always been for the last hundred thousand years or so, the world itself has changed incredibly, and those changes are only going to speed up over the coming years.

So how do we prepare our kids for living a good life in the modern age? 

In this entertaining, challenging and thought provoking presentation, Nigel will share insights gained over a career that spans over 20 years and has taken him all over the world in search of answers to all kinds of questions. He'll cover everything from parenting basics, to helping your kids plan for the future, and dealing with issues like stress, anxiety and depression. This is an evening full of real world solutions, for real world problems.
