Jesus Christ Superstar is the classic 1971 rock opera from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Featuring such memorable songs as "I Don't Know How to Love Him" "Hosanna" and "What's the Buzz" the show also features such biblical figures as Judas Iscariot, Mary Magdalene, Pontius Pilate, Caiaphas, Annas, Peter and King Herod.
Featuring Tom Grut as Jesus Christ, George Keenan as Judas Iscariot and Sophia Pedersen as Mary Magdalene, with an incredible supporting cast, this will be a must-see production!
A farce set in a Taupo lakeside holiday home, during the un-PC 1980s. A family of city folk, a jet-lagged granny fresh from Britain and a probation officer daughter with her unexpected Maori husband – along with an over-friendly US exchange student – give us a Christmas celebration like no other. And that’s without the shotgun-blazing deer farmer! An irresistibly funny, satirical play.

“A real witch could smell you across the street… to a witch, you would smell like fresh dog droppings!”
Roald Dahl’s scariest book is brought to life in a tremendously terrifying treat for the whole family. Witches absolutely detest children. They find them revolting and are planning to wipe them out like weasels! They want to squish them and squiggle them and make them disappear. But one brave young boy and his grandmother have a plan to get rid of the witches for good… if only they can avoid being turned into mice.
Mairangi Players' first production for 2018 will be Perfect Wedding, a fast moving multi-layered comedy.
A bridegroom wakes on his wedding morning in his own bridal suite (where, of course, he should not be), with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment. He finds a strange woman naked in bed beside him. An extremely attractive woman who, in the depths of his post stag-night hangover, he can't remember even having been introduced to. During the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed and out of the way, the bride arrives, the stranger is trapped in the bathroom, the best man pretends the stranger is his girl friend, which means that his real girl friend has to be kept ignorant of the fact. Then the bride's parents arrive ... and amidst all the chaos there is a touching love story.
