Operatunity: The Golden Era of Musicals

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Many of us grew up with musicals featuring the singing greats like Jeanette McDonald, Nelson Eddy, Judy Garland and Dame Julie Andrews.

Featured both as stage musicals and endearing movies this era of music theatre combined the romance, “feel-good”, attitude of the era with amazing melody and dulcet singing. We pay tribute to these great artists and the melodious era of music they were a key part of, with its quirky lyrics and magnificent melodies, written by the likes of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Romberg, Kern and Lehar.

Susan Boland, John Cameron (our own Jeanette McDonald and Nelson Eddy), and our music theatre specialists bring you The Golden Era of Musicals, from Show Boat and the Student Prince through to My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music, when melody was truly king!

About this Venue

Our church was started in 1903 with a small group of enthusiastic and enterprising members. A building was soon erected, and is incorporated into our current building today, as part of our hall. Over the years Whangarei Central Baptist church has sent a steady stream of missionaries to serve in the Pacific, Asia and various other areas of the globe as well as sending people to Carey Baptist College for training for ministry.

A focus on young people and camping has always been part of the church, and so in 1951 the Manaia Camp Site was purchased which continues to be used for camps by our members, as well as by schools and other community groups from Northland and beyond (for more information about the campsite and bookings see Manaia Campsite).

Whangarei Central has a strong commitment to supporting and helping the people in our community. Over the years we have introduced a range of community initiatives including Regent Training Centre - to help unemployed young people (now sold); Arataki Ministries - to support people affected by mental illhealth and illness; Whangarei Community Toy Library to serve families; 4Cs to nurture and assist the elderly and lonely, Cityouth to grow and challenge high school students; Lynk to engage and develop intermediate age students and Overcomers to support, equip and encourage those who are facing difficulties or a crisis. There are a range of other specialist support services currently running through our church - contact the church office at Ministry inquiry to find out more.

We have planted other churches over the years, and we continue to support other Baptist churches in Northland in a variety of ways. We continue to look for further ways to support the people of Whangarei and Northland and are in the process of upgrading our buildings and developing our staff and volunteers to better serve our community's needs. Please see our Elders & Governance and Staff pages to find out more about our leadership structure and church workers.
