“The Hackman Auckland Theatre Awards were established in 2009 as a celebration of the local professional performing arts industry. It is a night of reverence, celebration and frivolity and both years Gareth hit the mark perfectly, bringing the house down with his fantastic musical numbers and clever, sharp wit as well as paying respect when needed to the more serious awards of the night. I fully recommend Gareth for any host/emcee roles and am available to talk more about my experiences employing him.”
