The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PLACE, YOUR PAPER - Richard Mays

En­ter­tain­ment plays a big part in the life of this town. Whether it’s last week’s sec­ondary school Pasi­fika Fu­sion Fes­ti­val and Brit comic Alan Davies in the Re­gent on Broad­way, or the New Zealand Jazz Youth Or­ches­tra at the Globe, a dance recital or main­bill the­atri­cal per­for­mance, there is al­ways plenty go­ing on.

For a small city we are cer­tainly spoiled for choice and di­ver­sity. At the end of each month, we like to give you a heads up about shows, per­for­mances, ex­hi­bi­tions, places to visit and places to dine in En­joy!, our liftout en­ter­tain­ment and events guide. Grab­bing the lion’s share of on-stage at­ten­tion in Au­gust will be Abbey Mu­si­cal Theatre’s pro­duc­tion of Mamma Mia! and Cen­tre­point’s pro­duc­tion of Franken­stein.

At Te Manawa there’s Sun­light and the Na­tional Ge­o­graphic ex­hi­bi­tions, while at Arena the Tur­bos have their first home game against Waikato on Au­gust 22. Do take the op­por­tu­nity to get out and En­joy!
