Silo Theatre Confirms New Venue For Large Scale Show In Hamilton
Despite the closure and the Hamilton City Council’s decision to close Founders Theatre, with the support of H3, who have helped their partners in this venture (Silo Theatre and Tour-Makers), The Book of Everything has found a new home.
Luckily dates were available for Silo Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of The Book of Everything at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, Waikato University, from 17 - 20 March.
The theatre will be smaller, however the Silo Production team have worked around the clock and very hard to ensure that this large scale production will fit and look spectacular.
Due to a smaller capacity, getting tickets for this show, will be in more demand than ever before.
Hamilton audiences are strongly advised to book now before this show sells out.
Silo Theatre are looking forward to performing in Hamilton for the first time with this award winning show and stand out case, and are thrilled that their production has found a new home. With more tours in the pipeline the company hope to make Hamilton a regular stop on their touring network.
Magical and beautifully moving, the international sensation - The Book of Everything is an enchanting stage adaptation of the children’s story by Guus Kuijer. Silo Artistic Director Sophie Roberts has put together a stellar cast of actors for the production including Amanda Billing (Shortland Street, Chicago), Dan Musgrove (Westside, Underbelly), Rima Te Wiata (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Housebound), Jennifer Ward-Lealand (Falling In Love Again, Brel) Stephen Lovatt (Neighbours, Fantail) and Michelle Blundell (Shortland Street), plus newcomers Amanda Tito (Step Dave) and Patrick Carroll (The Elephant Thief).
The Book of Everything celebrates the limitless power of imagination and of the heart. Mothers, nephews, grandfathers, daughters, cousins, boyfriends, sisters, friends — this is theatre for anyone aged 10 — 110.
