A tale of two productions

Building upon the recent and outstanding success of both Socially Distanced Shakespeare (2021) – winner of three Auckland Live Showdown Awards, including Best Play – and Les Misérables (2019) – winner of six Auckland Live Showdown Awards, including People’s Choice and Outstanding Production Awards – we can now announce Westlake Schools 2022 offering.

In a departure from the norm, Westlake will be producing two shows – a musical and a play – in a two-week season, across June 29 – July 9, 2022.

The musical will be Stephen Sondheim and Larry Gelbarts* comedy musical – A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum; the play will be Antigone by Sophocles**. The two will play against each other on alternate nights across the season – a musical that is also a Roman farce, and a play that is a Greek tragedy.

Westlake Schools boast both a proud tradition of cultural output, plus an abundance of talented actors, singer and technicians. Tickets will be made available from early 2022, and we look forward to the continued support of our community.
