What an awesome night! Venue was great and comfy and the show was hilarious as! Parking was no worries even in a packed show. I get to select a seat when I booked my tickets. Seats are cushioned and not those plastic seats.

We visit Auckland every couple of years (from the UK) to visit family. Today was our first time at the Bruce Mason Centre, to see a production of George's Marvellous Medicine. Spacious, light, bright,good acoustics and friendly, helpful staff. A great facility for the community.
