Last May, my sister and I watched Singin’ in the Rain in Civic Theatre. We had a bit of time before the show so we checked out the Auckland Art Gallery too.
We managed to snap some outfit shots which was a bonus!
Check out some photos from the art gallery, outfit shots and what I thought of Singin’ in the Rain below. I know this post is a bit late but it’s better late than never!
Let’s start with the outfits.
My sister is wearing Boohoo crop top (also seen in this haul), Cotton On skater skirt and coat, Equip necklace, Kmart bag and No1 shoes boots.
I’m wearing this Boohoo Dress and The Warehouse ankle boots. I’m glad my sister managed to take decent outfit shots! It was hard though because people wanted to walk pass the bridge but the lighting was too good to pass up.
Now onto the Auckland Art Gallery. I really love going to the art gallery ever since it has been redone. It is free to enter and they have great art pieces. It was pouring down with rain that day so it was great to be inside. You can also leave your umbrellas and bags in the baggage counter. They have great service in there.
I love the variety of art work inside the gallery. I also love the beautiful architecture inside. It is amazing. My favourite parts are the NZ Collection by the south atrium and the Victorian Art area.
The reason we were in town was because of Singin’ in the Rain.
My sister and I love watching musicals and I’m so glad we came to this because it was great! We were close to the front and at one part, the lead character Kathy Selden went down the stage on our side so we could see her up close.
It was also amazing to see rain on stage. The cast was amazing and the show was funny and highly entertaining. Lina Lamont was so good at being bad. That screeching voice was hilarious and I love Cosmo’s character. I have yet to watch a musical I don’t like. Wicked is still my absolute favourite but I highly recommend this although it is now finished showing in Auckland.
The next musical this year is Cats. We haven’t decided if we’re going to watch it yet so if you have seen it before here or somewhere else in the world, let me know if it’s worth it.
