Comic dance show is back

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The hit show Stomp is com­ing to Auck­land in Au­gust and we’ve got tick­ets for you and a friend to see it at the Aotea Cen­tre ASB Theatre.

It’s been four years since the in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed mu­si­cal was last per­formed to packed the­atres in New Zealand.

‘‘We are re­ally ex­cited about com­ing back,’’ cocre­ator/direc­tor Steve McNi­cholas says.

‘‘If you’ve seen it be­fore then this show has plenty of new rou­tines to en­thral.’’

Stomp has en­ter­tained au­di­ences all over the world since its launch in Ed­in­burgh 22 years ago.

The show was per­formed at the Lon­don 2012 Olympics clos­ing cer­e­mony and is a high­oc­tane mix of slick chore­og­ra­phy, tight en­sem­ble work, in­dus­trial per- cus­sion, and con­tin­u­ous com­edy.

"It is a unique and supremely clever idea, to cre­ate mu­sic from ev­ery­day ob­jects and com­bine it with side-split­ting com­edy and in­tri­cate chore­og­ra­phy to pro­duce a pol­ished the­atri­cal per­for­mance, the likes of which you’ve never seen be­fore,’’ pro­ducer and of Lunch­box The­atri­cal Pro­duc­tions chief ex­ec­u­tive James Cun­dall says.
