    Aurora Centre Events - What's On At The Aurora Centre

      




    March 2018




    Kelvin Cruickshank Live

    Wednesday 21 March - 7:00pm

    Kelvin

    Presented by:  Open Eyes Exclusive


    With the outstanding success and popularity of TV2’s award winning series ‘Sensing Murder’, Kelvin has literally been swamped with people wanting to see him. 

    Passing on messages from people who have died and are in spirit is what Kelvin was put on earth to do. However, since the incredible success of Sensing Murder there's been such a great demand from people on this side wanting private readings that it is just not physically possible for him to do them anymore. The best way for Kelvin to be able to put people in touch with the loved ones they've lost - and also help them to understand how the afterlife works - is through his live shows.

    When you come to his Live show, please come with an open heart and an open mind. Kelvin tries to read for as many people as possible but what happens on the night is up to spirit, not Kelvin. If there is a lot of expectation from the audience it can create a barrier. So relax, chill out and enjoy the show and you never know - it could be your loved ones who show up. And even if they don't, hopefully the evening will open your eyes to the fact those we've lost are now in the white light, and their spirit lives on.

    Moscow Ballet 'La Classique' - The Nutcracker

    Thursday 17 May - 7:30pm

    TN

    Presented by: Grand International Concerts Ltd

    Following 2017 sell-out performances of Swan Lake, Moscow Ballet La Classique returns to New Zealand to present the jewel of classical ballet, Tchaikovsky’s spectacular masterpiece THE NUTCRACKER.

    La Classique was founded in 1990 by its current director Elik Melikov.

    La Classique with its artistic ballet mastery, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets will take us on a journey back in time to the frost-covered, gas lit world of Clara, her beloved nutcracker doll and the magician Drosselmeyer.

    This romantic tale with its blend of magic and realism brings to life the popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the famous Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and “The Waltz of the Flowers.”

    The greatest success of Russian Theatre is undoubtedly classical ballet with this delightful production of the much loved Nutcracker, La Classique captures the imagination, the passion, the humour and magic of the ballet.

    Box office opens 6:30pm
    Doors open 7:00pm
    Concert starts 7:30pm

    May & June 2018




    Heath Franklin's Chopper

    Thursday 31 May and Friday 1 June - 7:30pm

    Chopper

    Presented by: Laughing Stock Productions

    In the beginning, God created the moustache...and it was good. Then he took the next 6 days off, because when you've nailed it, treat yourself to a lie-down.

    The world has had religion ever since God was in nappies, and what have we got to show for it: wars, terrorist attacks and Christian rock. It's time religion took a hard look at itself, so Chopper is starting his own one, in his own image and giving hell to the almighty.

    Are you sick, lonely or poor? Well, there are plenty of other churches for you. Chopper is looking for rich idiots to tithe the crap out of; but really, any sinner will do.

    There is a new 'mo-ssiah' for a new age and he's holier than Oscar Pistorius' bathroom door.

    Thou shalt harden up and become a Chopostle! So gather round and be healed by Bogan Jesus!


    Box Office – 6:30pm
    Doors Open – 7:00pm
