The Topp Twins, A Topp Night!

Well, they were a sell out and a show which everyone enjoyed. It was 100 years of the top twins and most likely their last New Zealand Tour. The show was fantastic and everyone enjoyed themselves. With a little bit of audience interaction the locals got in on the act. I wonder if Richard will ever be the same again? Shelly and Phil had the night off ushering and were in fine form playing Camp Mother and Camp Leaders games. It was a Topp night.

The Top Twins finished the night off with a signing. Have a look at the photos and video of Donna's dogs having a sing along with The Topp Twins.

"Swan Lake" What a Show!!!

Swan Lake presented by The Imperial Russian Ballet.

All the seats were booked, and it was the first time we have had a full house in The Whitestone Contracting Auditorium since The OOH re-opened.

What a night! Everyone arrived nice and early to have a drink before the show. The theatre doors closed at 8 and the lights went out. The music started and the curtains opened. The night was filled with magic in air as the dancers tip-toed around the stage. It was a performance that left everyone speechless. It was the first time many people in Oamaru had seen a ballet in their life, I will guarantee it wont be their last.

So a friendly reminder... If you don't wont to be disappointed by missing out on a ticket, book early at The Oamaru Operahouse,, or call us on
