  • “For Today” is a musical set in a contemporary New Zealand High School. DAVID Miller is an ex-rugby star who was involved in an accident that killed his friend Tom Burrows – an event that DAVID feels responsible for. After a year away DAVID returns to his old school and instead of playing rugby decides to join the choir so he can meet SOPHIE – a popular and talented student who came to the school while DAVID was away. SOPHIE used to go out with JORDAN Jones, a tough guy who blames DAVID for Tom’s death. The ensuing action includes romance, action, drama, singing and dancing all set to a collection of contemporary songs by some of New Zealand’s greatest singers and bands.

  • Based on the real-life story of history’s Grace O’Malley – an Irish Chieftain and notorious pirate, The Pirate Queen is an adventure chronicling the compelling, inspiring heroine who led an extraordinary life as a rogue, lover and mother in 16th-century Ireland. To protect her people and save her one true love, O'Malley must confront the one woman more powerful than her — her fierce rival, Queen Elizabeth I of England. From the writers of Les Misérables and Miss Saigon, the show combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is both historic romance and a timeless epic.
