North Shore Music Theatre is proud to present the NZ Premiere of BRING IT ON
Set in the high stakes world of competitive high school cheerleading, Bring It On: The Musical tells the story of Campbell,
cheer captain and most popular girl at the uber-affluent Truman High School.
Before she can lead her award-winning squad to another win at Nationals, tragedy strikes: School redistricting forces
Campbell to transfer to the “rough” Jackson High School.
Knocked off her throne as teen queen, Campbell tries to make sense of her new “outsider” status.
With a national title on the line, Campbell must convince Danielle, Jackson’s “it-girl” and leader of hip-hop dance troupe
The Crew, to start a cheerleading squad and help bring on some sweet revenge.
With music and lyrics by Lin Manuel-Miranda (Hamilton, Moana, in the Heights) and based on the movie starring Kirsten Dunst
This show is a high energy spectacular that should not be missed!
Another Shoreside Theatre Mid-Winter Murder Mystery Thriller
Agatha Christie can hold the theatre spellbound when nearly every character is a plausible suspect. Only the dead are above suspicion.
An advertisement appears in the personal columns of a local newspaper announcing a murder will take place at the house known as Little Paddocks.
But it’s not a prank. More deaths take place.
Miss Marple and a detective must work their way through a house full of suspects. Nothing is ever as straight forward as it would seem but the clues to the murderer are carefully placed throughout the action.
When Greg makes a seemingly harmless comment about his girlfriend Steph’s “regular” looking face, the information gets back to Steph and sends their relationship over the deep end. Married Couple Carly (Steph’s Best friends) and Kent (Greg’s Best Friend) are pulled in for the ride. We see each of them deal with the pressures of what it means to be ‘pretty’, and observe how they manage the infidelity, betrayal and deceit that creeps into their lives
Louisa Hutchinson as “Steph”
Zane Fleming as “Greg”
Emma Carr as “Carly”
Johnny Light as “Kent”
“The best new Broadway play of the season” – Time

Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band bring blues, ballads, banter and bling to your Friday night.
Wellington based Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band are dynamic, masterful and all about entertainment.
Collins, who is known for being an engaging front woman, likes to move between ballsy blues and soulful ballads, making them her own. You'll no doubt hear a little Nina Simone, a little Etta James and Laura's take on some unsuspecting men.
Laura says "Blues comes straight from the heart and that’s just how I like it, it’s accessible, joyful, heart full music and not only that it makes me want to move – what’s not to like?”
Laura's band are all long-time players in the Wellington and National music scene. Wayne Mason well-known singer songwriter, also one hell of a fine boogie piano player ‘firing it up’ on their behalf. Think Fats Domino, think Dr John, think Professor Longhair and you’ll be in the right honky tonk.
John O’Connor, a masterful, pedal-free guitarist who’s played with everyone along the way, from BB King to Kiri Te Kanawa. In the engine room George Barris on warm upright bass (in his early days part of Highway) is joined by Pete Cogswell on the ‘back porch’ drums.
“Having a pulled-back rhythm section just allows us to be lower volume and bring a really warm vocal led sound. We’ll still make you want to dance though, this band just swings.”
Let the Back Porch Blues Band add some heat to your Friday night.
