A slice of Kiwiana in the 80s! A brand new show!


UPDATE 10/05/2022:

Tēnā koutou Circa whānau,

We are sorry that, due to illness, the opening week for Cringeworthy – The 80s has had to be postponed until Saturday 21 May. Whilst it is sad to have to wait to experience the fabulous fun of Cringeworthy for another week, it was a necessary decision to make.

Be sure to keep your leg warmers and sweatbands at the ready because the new opening night is fast approaching on Saturday 21 May with a preview on Friday 20 May! The season will run until Saturday 11 June and performance times are 6:30pm Tuesday to Thursday, 8pm Friday and Saturday, and 4pm Sundays.

If you had purchased tickets to the original opening week, our wonderful Box Office team will be in touch with you!

Cringeworthy is back, baby with a brand new show! A righteous, stellar, fantabulous blast from the past that is equal parts nostalgic and hilarious. Following on from the highly successful Cringeworthy [the 70s] this show takes you back to NZ in the 1980s. It’s a feast of contagious Kiwi songs served with a side of spandex, a huge dollop of cheesy comedy, and stunning vocals.

Let’s get physical, let’s get excited, and let’s get footloose as this high energy team take you on a journey showcasing some of NZ’s biggest local and international hits of the decade: The Mockers, Sharon O’Neill, Jon Stevens, The Holidaymakers and more. Get into the groove and wear your best 80s outfits, fluoro lycra and mullets!

Starring: Andrea Sanders, Matt Mulholland, Susie Dunn and Devon Neiman.
