A large Auckland Opening Night will not be possible at covid alert level 2. Instead we have opted to stage our main Auckland event near the end of our season and maximise the chances we can share this with a big crowd at level 1.
The exact timing of the event and ticketing arrangements will be announced once the Covid alert level has been confirmed. Check showmeshorts.co.nz for further information.
