I just got goose bumps watching the Youtube clip for ‘The Brave’. If it’s going to move me from behind the safety of a computer screen, imagine sitting in the darkened theatre with the spotlight on the stage, taking it all in. Not only does it come with absolute rave reviews from the New Zealand Listener and Sam Neill (how could you argue with that?), some recognisable faces from the tellie, and from what I’ve witnessed it’ll be beautifully raw young talent on stage in a stirring performance; with enough warning to wear some waterproof mascara.
This Friday I’m off to the Tauranga Art Gallery from 1:15pm for a one-off opportunity. Amid Gregor Kregar’s exhibition the mayor will be there to officiate, the cast of The Brave will perform and then hang out along with some other familiar faces of sporting prowess. You know… not so casually, some All Blacks with their digits poised for a stream of signature scribing. Yeah that’s right…. an exhibition at the Tauranga Art Gallery, the mayor, the cast of The Brave and some of the All Blacks. Not a bad Friday lunch break, I reckon.
So come on down for a taster of how awesome the Tauranga Arts Festival truly is, kick off the long weekend and grab an All Black’s autograph too! Be at the Tauranga Art Gallery, 108 Willow Street, from 1:15pm to around 2:30pm, this Friday 25th October.
Or come and be moved by The Brave at Baycourt Theatre, Thursday 24th & Friday 25th October.
