“All parents with teens need to watch!” – Sandra Aukino (Parent)
After a successful season at Mangere Arts Centre, Parting Stage is once again bringing film to the stage in an original live cinema experience: a collaboration of film, dance, theatre and live music like you’ve never seen before. The Aorere Film Academy invites you to laugh, cry and re-evaluate your life in this coming-of-age dramedy.
Five youthful minds struggle to sustain friendships and figure out what life holds for them. What else is new? They face the age-old question – to seize tempting opportunities or settle for what is known and safe. The result? As often is the case for the teens of today: crippling indecision. Complicating this is the fact that they are pulled in different directions by family and friends. Their stories are real; they resonate and give insight into the generation they represent.

“An absolutely overwhelming success!” – Maranda Haynes (Parent)
“…filled with laughter and tears.”- Camille Kalaha (Student)
