Dr Seuss's The Cat in the Hat

5 Oct 2018 (Fri)

Napier Municipal Theatre, Fri 5th Oct 10am & 12:30pm

Two bored kids. One rainy day. And one crazy cat wearing a red-striped hat.
"It's fun to have fun, but you have to know how." Along with Thing One and Thing Two, the cat will fill the theatre with mischievous humour and madcap style. Young and old alike will delight in this faithful adaptation of a classic book come to life before our very eyes.

Spoiler alert: Things run amuck, and quickly.

Fraser Mack

Crab Farm Winery Sun 1st April 1pm-3pm Free Admission

Book yourself a treat when you book a table at Crab Farm Winery. Join Fraser Mack at Crab Farm Winery's restaurant for a few hours of acoustic originals and covers.

You might have heard him during Hawkes Bay Summers in wineries and cafes. You may have seen him in the evening with his dynamic 3-hour get-up-and-dance sets. Mack prides himself on pleasing his audience so expect to be entertained with covers of songs you know interpreted with Mack's distinctive tapping/picking/strumming style, as well as Mack's increasing repertoire of originals.
