The Takapuna Food, Wine & Music Festival returns to Smales Farm on Saturday February 15th 2020 as the new Sunsetter Food, Wine & Music Festival!

The Festival has been rebranded as Sunsetter to reflect the enhanced experience and vibe that we aim to bring every summer.

Produced by Highlife Entertainment, this quality event is set to provide another amazing occasion as we form a collaboration of some of the best international and local acts, New Zealand wineries and craft breweries, popular eateries and food vendors, spectacular performers and more in a unique urban environment.

Expect an event that differs slightly from traditional food and wine festivals and get ready for an occasion that delivers an offering and atmosphere like no other!

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.”

Since launching in 2019, Encore Theatre Collective has made an incredible mark on the Auckland theatre scene and redefined the standard of youth theatre in New Zealand. Hot on the heels of their sold-out season of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the June season of Seussical features 120 of the country’s finest young talent, ranging in age from 9-23.

With spectacular choreography, unbelievable production design, and slick vocals, Encore Theatre Collective’s Seussical The Musical is the theatrical offering of 2021 that you will not want to miss!
