Stomp­ing up a great time

Central Leader - - NEWS -

The hit stage 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’s ASB Theatre.

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

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

‘‘If you’ve never seen Stomp you should come and see what all the noise is about, and if you’ve seen it be­fore then this show has plenty of new rou­tines to en­thral.’’

The show is a high­oc­tane mix of slick chore­og­ra­phy, tight en­sem­ble work, in­dus­trial per­cus­sion, and 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 James Cun­dall says.
