Ian McKellen on Stage - with Shakespeare, Tolkien and You in Otago
The Hobbit star Ian McKellen is downing his staff and pointy blue hat at weekends to perform a series of special one-man shows.
With support from ASB Bank, Sir Ian will open in Stratford on Saturday 5 May before heading to Palmerston North, Hamilton, Tauranga, Nelson, Auckland, Christchurch, Wanaka, Hastings, Wellington and Carterton.
The tour will be stopping at 11 New Zealand centres, to raise funds to restore Christchurch's earthquake-damaged Isaac Theatre Royal.
