15th Annual End of the Golden Weather

Date: December 25th, 2020 - December 25th, 2020

Time: 10:00 am - 10:30 am

The 15th annual presentation of Bruce Mason’s iconic play. It started as a one-off, then grew and grew. Now it’s become a Takapuna Christmas Day tradition.


Bring a chair, pack a picnic, nudge the neighbours then bring all the family along for Stephen Lovatt’s final performance.

A 30-min segment of the Bruce Mason’s iconic play that gives a children’s perspective on a kiwi christmas in the 1930s.

It’s funny, poignant and guaranteed to leave you with a glow. 

A free event with gold coin koha for Oxfam NZ.

(Wet weather venue: Takapuna War Memorial Hall)

Encore Theatre Collective is proud to present a dazzling new production of Seussical The Musical, based on the immortal works of Dr Seuss. Seussical brings to life many infamous and well-loved Dr Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird and, of course, the Cat in the Hat. These characters and stories weave together in a whimsical and wacky musical extravaganza, played out against an uplifting score, and highlighting the show’s universal messages of love and acceptance – reminding us all that “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”
