Auckland Live Cabaret Season

The Civic
2 May, 2019

The jewel of Auckland, The Civic has reconnected with its scandalous youth and turned on a Cabaret Season to make Ms. Stark pink with pride.

It’s intimate, it’s loud, it’s crazy-fun, and will be your winter escape this June.  Be entertained, lose yourself and play.

Shows happen for one week only and there is a late-night piano-party bar hidden away in The Civic's depths be discovered. 

If you’re looking for a glamorous, out there, progressive mix of music, drag, theatre and comedy, the Auckland Live Cabaret Season is the place to be.

Come for a show, stay for two, and linger into the wee small hours!
