Mumma Mia

Absolutely amayzing. The show couldn't get any better well done. The singing and dancing top notch. Bring on the next show to support the theatre

With the closure (possibly for good) of the Hastings Municipal Theatre due to earthquake risk, the Napier muni is Hawkes Bay's one remaining heritage theatre venue.

This is on the trust walking tours, and it is really memorable. The exterior and interior are prime deco. It appears that the musical offerings are well worth taking in…but we were off on the performance schedule.
