Swing into the lives, loves and music of 1931
The charter of a vintage DC3 will mark the launch “1931- The Show” at Rotorua’s Blue Baths. Put together to mark the 80th anniversary of the opening of the juvenile pool of the landmark Art Deco/ Spanish Mission building in December 1931, the show is “a celebration of the swing era when cats were cool, dames were peaches, and music was a way to forget Great Depression worries for a few hours.” Blue Baths managing director Mrs Jo Romanes says the theme warranted the DC3 charter for show-goers from the Auckland region as part of the Friday 09DEC opening night package.
Limited to just 30 passengers, the $359pp package includes a return flight from Auckland’s Ardmore airfield to Rotorua International Airport on the DC3, Rotorua transfers, overnight hotel accommodation with breakfast and late check out, premium tickets to the opening night of the show and a glass of bubbles on arrival. 1931: The Show is the tale of a Rotorua lad whose world is turned upside down by the arrival of a glamorous American diva in his life. Its cast and crew of 14
singers, dancers and musicians, including a five-piece swing band, are drawn from all over the country.
The show will run Thu and Fri throughout DEC, then Tue, Thu and Sat during JAN and FEB. Tickets are $45 or $55 (premium). Groups of 20 or more can opt for dinner in the Blue Baths Tea Room prior to a show by arrangement.
