    Les Liaisons Dangereuses

    Date: June 22, 2019 - July 20, 2019

    Time: 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm

    Written by: Christopher Hampton Based on the novel by: Pierre Choderlos de Laclos Directed by: Ross Gumbley As makers of taste they are without peer. As beings of wit and panache they are without exception. As creatures of debauchery they are without equal. The Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont are bored. They have seduced whom they wanted and ruined dozens of reputations. Why? To pass the time and, frankly, because they can. They are dangerous to know and only open their mouths when they have first calculated how much damage they can do. But their lives of supreme self-indulgence are about to fall apart. At risk is their social standing, their integrity, even their lives… because one of them is about to fall in love. Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ eighteenth century satirical novel, expertly adapted for the stage by Christopher Hampton, has lost none of its power and bite. Its depiction of a society lost in itself and about to be cleansed by the French revolution is one of the great cautionary tales of all time. It warns that, in spite of a sumptuous surface, things can be rotten underneath. Make sure that those who smile at you are your friends. Please follow and like us:

    Postmodern Jukebox 2019

    Date: October 19, 2019

    Time: 12:00 am to 12:00 am

    TEG Dainty, Nice Events and David Roy Williams Entertainment are excited to announce that Postmodern Jukebox will return to New Zealand in September and October 2019 following four hugely successful tours in as many years. The multi-talented collective will bring their re-imagined contemporary hits back to eagerly awaiting fans with a brand-new Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 show. The tour opens up in Tauranga on Friday 11 October, and moves on to Auckland on Saturday 12 October, Hamilton on Sunday 13 October, Napier on Tuesday 15 October, Palmerston North on Wednesday 16 October, Wellington on Friday 18 October and Christchurch on Saturday 19 October before winding up in Dunedin on Sunday 20 October. Tickets go on sale at 9.00am NZDT on Thursday 8 November for the eight-city tour. To usher in the upcoming Twenty-Twenties, the famed time-twisting musical collective will circumnavigate the globe and prepare the world for a new decade with their Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour. Postmodern Jukebox creator Scott Bradlee hopes this new decade will see a return to the style and craftsmanship that typified the music of past generations. “Last time around the ‘Twenties gave us Jazz, America’s one true art form. Who knows what is possible in the 2020s?” says Bradlee. “One thing that is for sure is that there are a lot of folks that are tired of the clickbait headlines, mindless reality TV, and smartphone addiction that has only served to divide people in the last decade. We’re using our small corner of the pop culture space to tell people to forget their troubles, and come join us for a night of celebrating true musical talent and timeless style – live and in real life.” Postmodern Jukebox’s Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour will host official Twenties 2.0 initiation performance parties in nearly 250 cities all around the world. “When creating a touring version of the Postmodern Jukebox concept, we work on pairing the right talent with the right material and building a unique and amazing experience for Postmodern Jukebox fans,” Bradlee says. “Get ready for the most sensational ’20s party this side of The Great Gatsby.” Started by Scott Bradlee in 2009, Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) have gone on to amass over one billion YouTube views with 3.5 million subscribers, and have chalked up more than 1.7 million fans on Facebook. For the past half-decade, PMJ has toured the world, playing hundreds of shows to sold-out houses on six continents. They’ve also performed on showslike “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard charts, and caught the attention of NPR Music, NBC News and a wide array of celebrity fans.
