Grand Opening, a show presented by Wellington's Barbarian Productions and part of Auckland Live's Summer in the Square programme, takes a look behind the curtains of the Mighty Civic to reveal the histories and hidden corners that Joe Public mightn't otherwise get to see. Barbarian's Jo Randerson talks to Kate (okay, and a very excited Mike) about choirs, DKD coffee and general all-round mischief. Get your tickets for the limited showings HERE.
