The UXBRIDGE theatre (originally a church) is a unique space with character and lots of warmth. It’s a specific space designed for all entertainment and performing arts, also enjoying a ‘state of the art’ sound and lighting system that enhances the original acoustics of the building from past times. The theatre makes a fantastic hire space for any performers who want an intimate and superior place to perform. We deliver limited UXBRIDGE events but if you think we could sell-out your performance then please enquire now. 2020 is shaping up to be a great year!

Following on from SABB’s tribute to Count Basie in 2019 the band are excited to present a concert dedicated to the genius of Duke Ellington – one of the greatest jazz composers and band leaders of all time whose recordings remain among the most popular jazz of the big-band era. The programme will include some of his biggest hits including “Take the ‘A’ Train”, “In A Mellow Tone”, “I’m Beginning To See the Light” and “It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)”. Tickets are $15 with proceeds going to local charities.

THE DESOTOS

At the crossroads where Americana meets country rock and the blues one of New Zealand’s finest live and recording acts. A tight, powerful blend of rock-infused country blues, The DeSotos are equally at home at an outdoor festival, winery or performance venue. The band can also strip it back to acoustic form to suit more intimate occasions.

THE DAYLIGHT ATHEIST

An instant hit when it premiered, The Daylight Atheist by award-winning satirical cartoonist Tom Scott, stars Michael Hurst in a not-to-be-missed repertoire experience.

Ageing Irish raconteur Danny Moffat retreats from the harsh light of the world to his bedroom. There, under hoardings of old newspapers and beer bottles, he sorts through a lifetime of memories and regrets, from growing up as a boy in Ireland, to the hopes and disappointments of immigration to New Zealand.

Tom Scott’s wonderfully inventive and fiercely funny play is a stirring portrait of his father, a deeply flawed yet charismatic bloke.

“Has its audience roaring with laughter” – The Age, Melbourne.   Contains strong language.
