The Court Theatre has announced its brand-new Meridian Energy 2019/2020 Season, packed full of vibrant and exciting productions!
“This is a season which includes invigorating plays from overseas with a stunning platter of New Zealand work; some proven and some brand new. The season is rounded out by some of the best scripts ever written,” says Artistic Director Ross Gumbley.
“All of these plays, and the work of The Court company as a whole, allow us to offer you an artistically vibrant time in the theatre,” says Gumbley.
Over in The Court’s studio theatre, The Forge at The Court, a series of productions will be staged throughout the year that speak to our need to be kind to one another – starting with haunting father-daughter drama The Arsonists.
Au Ko Tuvalu then provides an essential and bittersweet story of climate change, while returning hits A Christmas Carol, The Early Early Late Show and Scared Scriptless will all continue to bring laughter to Canterbury audiences throughout 2019 and 2020.
There’s plenty of magic for the kids, too, in brand-new plays The Princess and the Frog (and the Robber!); Escape from Haunted House; Little Bo Peep and the Sheep Rustlers; The Ferocious Animals Petting Zoo; and The Pied Piper, all designed to ignite a love of theatre in our littlest audience members.
There’s something for everyone in the new Meridian Energy 2019/2020 Season, so explore our vibrant programme now.
