Baycourt is tackling school holiday boredom with circus comedy!
Parents across Tauranga may wonder how they’re going to entertain their kids in the upcoming school holidays, so the team at Baycourt Community and Arts Centre have jumped in to help.
The venue has deliberately booked a highly energetic hit Australian comedy production, 3 Speed Crunch Box Rebooted, for the end of the school holidays – just in time for when both kids and parents might be starting to get a bit scratchy.
Tauranga City Council Arts and Culture Manager, James Wilson, says Baycourt has always been a great place for kids- as well as those who are young at heart- so the venue is always on the lookout for high quality shows for young audiences.
“Many of the Baycourt team are working parents themselves, so we are well-versed in the need to keep your kids entertained and engaged in the school holidays. This is exactly why we’ve booked this hilarious show for May 1st, so it’s in the sweet spot of helping parents out when they need it most!”
3 Speed Crunch Box Rebooted is about a family of outlandish stunt people, so you can expect impressive aerobatics, nail-biting circus tricks and plenty of silly characters in this absurd, side-splitting, slapstick comedy. The show is suitable for all kids aged 3 upwards and is perfect for a family day out.
Mr Wilson says the show has been “rebooted” with an internationally trained team of professionals who are based in Aotearoa-New Zealand.
“We’ve seen the challenge of getting international performers into the country first-hand, so by casting locals into these roles, we’ve found a way to overcome that. Rest assured, these performers are the best at what they do, having recently performed at the Cuba Dupa Carnival, and will no doubt keep your kids engaged with their laugh-out-loud tricks and jokes.”
He says Baycourt is determined to bring in a wide range of shows, so there’s something for everyone in our community to enjoy.
“Arts experiences build resiliency in communities and teach us about other people’s life experiences. They’re a valuable opportunity to come together and enrich our emotional world. Or, in this case, they’re a chance to have a really good laugh with each other at a time when we could all use it,”
Tickets to 3 Speed Crunch Box Rebooted are $21 for adults, $15 for children (3-14 years), or $60 for a whānau of four (adults or children). There are two shows at Baycourt on May 1st, at 10am and 1pm.
