Ongoing Events on Waiheke Island:

  • Mondays 6:30 - 8pm: Crash Course: Chris Martenson’s “Crash Course” is a series of videos which serves as a clear and straightforward explanation of how our economy, energy systems and environment interact, how we got to where we are today, and some reasonable expectations for the future. The July sessions will be shown in the Theatre foyer on four successive Monday evenings from the 5th until the 26th of July from 6:30-8pm. A repeat of the series will run from the 9th to 30th of August. There is no charge for the course; we do ask, however, that people choose a month when they can attend all four sessions. Please RSVP to 372-2041. Facilitated by Millie Watkins, James Samuel and Emma Bowyer-Warner. @ Artworks Community Theatre
  • Tuesdays 3:30 - 8pm: Dramability: Cindy Peterken will be taking groups through drama classes that will include theatre games, improvisation, devising, script work, creating a character, stage fighting, mask work and more. Students must enrol for a term of lessons, and are encouraged to commit to a year's attendance to allow for more exciting planning. Each term will have a different focus and there will be at least one evening performance to put skills into practice. All students should arrive 5min before the start of the lesson and wear suitable loose clothing for moving around freely and there will be some floor work -- so no best clothes, please! Bring only a dollop of enthusiasm and a sense of humour. 6-8yo: 3:30 - 4:15; 9-13yo: 4:45 - 5:45; 14-18yo: 6:30-8:00. To book, contact Cindy Peterken ph 2770 or email @ Artworks Community Theatre
