Titirangi Theatre - Basement Level, Lopdell House
First formed in 1935, Titirangi Theatre has long played an integral role in the life of Titirangi village.
The theatre takes great pride in maintaining the consistently high standard of its productions, offering a program that caters for all tastes, from Shakespeare to contemporary and locally written plays.
Due to the intimate size of the theatre, sell-out performances are not uncommon, so early bookings are advised!
Titirangi Theatre's most recent production was Alarms and Excursions
Season: 19-30 November
Chaos and confusion reign in Alarms and Excursions by English playwright Michael Frayn. It's all about gizmos, gadgets and humans on the blink, a clever buffet of ideas as two couples bring us six short plays linked by the difficulties modern technology has added to life, with a soundscape of bells, sirens, buzzes, warblers and beepers. Of its West End production, the reviewer said, "Left me physically helpless with laughter."
Directed by Christine Nash
Next production: A Skull in Connemara
by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh
Season: 10-21 March 2020
For one week every autumn Mick Dowd is employed to disinter bodies from the church's graveyard to make way for the recently deceased.
The news arrives that they will be digging up the section of the graveyard where Mick's wife, who died under mysterious circumstances in a car crash, is buried.
Mick, however, discovers that his wife's grave has been pillaged, and she's missing. Friend and neighbour Maryjonny helps uncover a plot, with generous helpings of the poteen, and a very entertaining and dark comedy emerges.
