8 – 30 November

Mizzis Horrocks’s class of seven-year-olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for their proud mums and dads – and the occasional social worker. Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles that he’s not a proper star (like at NASA), Herod won’t stop waving to his parents and the subversive Innkeeper insists on livening up the traditional script. And then the stick insect escapes …

A community theatre production by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd and NZ Play Bureau Ltd.

Dolphin Theatre began as The Onehunga Repertory Players in 1961. Mrs Veronica Dow, an actress and producer who had been active in English repertory theatre, was invited by the Mayor and Mayoress, Mr and Mrs Leo Manning, to form a local drama group.
