Playing next week for Alae at Orange Studio!

Early 2016 saw alae support Hollie Smith on her Water or Gold tour and now this fresh duo are bringing in 2017 by performing at their first major festival at this year’s Rhythm and Vines.

Join alae for an intimate studio show playing tracks from their recently produced, self-titled EP at Orange Studios in Ferrymead.

It’s a word that means nothing to you at the moment, and that’s a good thing. But that will change.

They’re a fresh, Kiwi duo with a unique sound that needs to be experienced to be understood. alae is what you get when you mix Alex Farrell-Davey and Allister Meffan; two old high school mates who are talented musicians in their own right, but when they come together, it’s something else entirely.

alae aren’t the status quo, they’re not sugar-coated or created in a lab - they got together because, for them, jamming together just feels right. And you'll feel that in everything you hear.

Something different I've never publicly talked about
Candice Milner is a talented artist from Lyttelton who, whilst dodging earthquakes and opening for The Warratahs, still managed to find time to write about her experience of tackling health and wellbeing issues. We're really grateful to her for letting us share this. It's a fantastic, heartfelt read, it shows how everyone's journey is unique and the good that can come when you find the courage to reach out for help.

Candice Milner, 18 is from the seemingly sleepy hollow that is the port town of Lyttelton. She recently released her highly anticipated debut album 'Evergreen' with Lyttelton Records and Southbound Distribution. You can stream her music on iTunes, Spotify and purchase instore..
A show we have been rehearsing hard for, get your tickets because these shows are gonna be insane!

December 13th – 30th 2016
Matinee and evening performances
Tickets: $20 - $46

Following an acclaimed inaugural season in December 2015 at the East Riding Theatre in the UK, LAF’s Artistic Director Mike Friend directs an original adaptation of Dickens' dark tale of social injustice seen through the eyes of an innocent child.

The show is coming to New Zealand’s Lyttelton Arts Factory this Christmas holidays.

In a highly visual interpretation incorporating song and dance, LAF's Oliver Twist captures the essence of Dickens' colourful landscape in a tale that still resonates today.

Director Mike Friend puts his fresh and exciting mark on this well-loved story of the orphan boy Oliver on his fateful journey from destitution to salvation via the colourful, and often dangerous, characters he meets on the way.

Featuring a fantastic cast of professional actors from England & New Zealand and some great young talent, the company brings a contemporary new edge to the familiar tale.

Suitable for everyone from 10 years old to 110 years old, Oliver Twist promises to be a great visual spectacle combining dark drama, comic humour, live musicians, song and dance.

See for more info and to book your tickets now.

We are proud to support the Christchurch City Mission with this production.

"This is an adaptation which is not content to rest simply in one time zone. Oliver is a child of the past and the present, surviving in a world of mobile 'phones as well as workhouses. Victorian England isn't too far away, as Fagin's humming of 'good ol' favourite ballads suggests, but there is a vicious modernity to this production too."
British Theatre guide. Dec 2015

"More please from director Mike Friend and his new take on Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist is fabulous. It has a touch of everything – past, present and future...... "
