Presented by: Indian Ink Theatre Co.

“A joyful, highly theatrical celebration” - NZ Herald

Fresh from a North American tour and following sell out seasons around the globe, Mrs Krishnan’s Party comes to Tauranga.

Step into the back room of Mrs Krishnan’s dairy where garlands decorate the ceiling, music flows and Mrs Krishnan is throwing a party like no other.  Food simmers on the stove, laughter abounds and strangers become friends in this joyous celebration of life.

Watch the actors juggle cooking, music and guests in an unfolding drama where no two nights are the same.  Kalyani Nagarajan and Justin Rogers have reviewers singing their praises and audiences leaping to their feet in appreciation.

Join the party before the Indian Ink heads overseas to tour 15 American cities.

Seating options

For information about the seating watch this video or scroll down:

Top Table: The Top Table is exactly that! These are strictly limited, premium seats in the centre of the room, seated around Mrs K’s kitchen table.

Inner Circle: These seats, would traditionally be your front row. They are next closest to the action and you’ve got nobody blocking your view. You can see and be seen.

Wallflowers: These are your more traditional, tiered seats at the edge of the room. These seats are raised and have great views where you can sit back and watch the action unfold. There is one seating bank on either side of the room, directly behind the Party Animals.

Cheeky Seats (combination seating - seats and bar stools): These seats are directly behind the Inner Circle. They are not raised, so are on the same level as the Inner Circle, except for some bar stools dotted around the periphery to provide a little extra elevation for those who want it.

Party Animals (standing tickets): The Party Animals stand behind the Cheeky Seats and in front of the raised Wallflower seats, which provide the perfect platform to perch on for comfort. Perfect place if you have come to party! You need room to move. You’re gonna dance like no-one is watching.
