Bookings essential Opening night special includes a free drink Bookings phone 445 9900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org TimeOut Dining & Entertainment Advertising Feature Come on down to the Music Hall Variety voices: Delwynne Winters and Greg Stockwell make a captivating duet. Top hat: Lee Chambers is 'Chairman of the Music Hall'. Company Theatre s Music Hall is a great way to end the year with a laugh and a song. Excerpts from over 60 old-time songs are in the show. Based on the popular Victorian Music Halls, the full evening s enter- tainment involves chorus and solo items, both comic and serious. Each new item is introduced by MC, The Chairman Mr Lee Chambers in top hat and tails. Participation is encouraged -- you ll be asked to cheer the her- oine and hiss the villain in the melodrama, The Seamier Side of Life . The show is directed by Ruth Chapman who has over 25 years musi- cal theatre experience. Some of the 16 chorus members have never been in a big production such as this before, whereas others are veterans of the stage. A highlight of the evening is the perform- ance by Keith Leggett, who toured for 16 years with the original Black and White Minstrel Show. The show opened at the Victoria Palace in England and was a 1960s favourite with both live and television audiences. Another highlight is the wonderful duet ren- dering of Galway Bay by soprano Delwynne Win- ter and tenor Greg Stockwell. The large cast has given plenty of challenge to wardrobe mistress Cathie Sandy, who spent hours researching and recreating the elegant Victorian costumes. There are five chorus brackets, each with a complete costume change. Bring your sing- ing voices for a singalong at the end. There is also a tal- ented five-piece band on stage, led by pianist Colin Roderick, under the musical direction of Lee Chambers. The lighting is by Scott Thomas who has just fin- ished working on 42nd Street at the Civic. The show runs from Saturday November 13 to 27. Tickets for the opening night include a free glass of wine or bub- bly. Early booking is advised. There are two Sunday matinee performances at 2pm on November 14 and 21. The Saturday November 20 perform- ance will celebrate Com- pany Theatre s 30th anniversary and is reserved for members and invited friends. For all other perform- ances phone Richard at The Rose Centre on 445-9900. Prices are $25 with $20 concessions. More details on www.company theatre.co.nz.

It s probably just as well we ve never returned to the excesses of the 80s, when long lunches were regarded by many as all in a day s work. But we should still be able to dine well at lunchtime, and GPK s latest enterprise is the ideal solution. The Express Lunch offered at GPK Albany promises diners can be in and out within the hour -- in the meantime, enjoying a superb two- course lunch which includes a glass of Imprint wine. Having trialled the Imprint $26 Express Lunch with success, GPK now also offers a $36 option -- both rep- resent superb value and feature the highest qual- ity food from the restau- rant s gourmet kitchen. For example, from the $26 menu, an entree like rocket, pear and Parmesan salad with shaved prosciutto and toasted walnuts would grace any menu any- where in the world. There are three fine entrees to choose from, followed by a tantalising mains selection of steak and fries, salmon on risotto cake, Thai red chicken curry, and the classic Magherita pizza. Things get even more exciting on the second menu, as you can see from the full selection reproduced here. Many restaurants would hap- pily charge the full $36 for dishes like Wakanui blue sirloin, roasted duck or seared snapper with prawn roulade -- yet at GPK they re only one component in a menu of two courses plus wine! The wine selection includes a choice of fine wines from Imprint, rounding off a lunchtime experience of style, qual- ity and value. GPK Albany is open seven days for lunch and dinner, weekends for brunch. A la carte and pizza menus also available. Fully licensed. No bookings. Address: 198-200 SH17 (corner Oteha Valley Rd and SH17), Albany. Phone 415-0433.
