Showhas it all
A sell-out during its 2015 Auckland Arts Festival season, the acclaimed and inspiring award-winning stage show The Book of Everything comes to the Regent on Broadway next week.
Adapted especially for young people by Australian Richard Tulloch from the children’s novel by Guus Kuijer, The Book of Everything brings together a stellar cast under the direction of Sophie Roberts from Auckland’s Silo Theatre. How’s this for casting? Jennifer Ward-Lealand and Rima Te Wiata have both spent time at Centrepoint Theatre. Amanda Billing and Michelle Blundell will both be familiar from Shortland Street; Dan Musgrove from Westside and Underbelly, Stephen Lovatt from Neighbours, and Amanda Tito from Step Dave.
Amagical show, The Book of Everything celebrates the limitless power of imagination and of the heart in a performance for anyone aged between 10 — 110.
Nine year old Thomas sees things that others don’t – a plague of green frogs, a hailstorm in summer, tropical fish in the canals of Amsterdam, where he lives. He’s keeping a diary, The Book of Everything, in which he records all that he sees. And one day, he writes his greatest wish: ‘When I grow up, I’m going to be happy.’
The Book of Everything plays the Regent on Broadway next Tuesday and Wednesday, March 8 – 9 at 7pm, with bookings through ticketdirect.co.nz
