An Evening with Jamie McDell, with guest Jenny Mitchell

Jamie McDell (New Zealand singer / songwriter) has achieved a prolific amount of success for someone 24 years of age. Being signed to EMI at age 16 sparked the beginning of a successful musical journey, making Jamie McDell a household name across the nation. With the release of her debut album ‘Six Strings and a Sailboat’, she went on to achieve Gold album sales, receive three NZ Music Award nominations, winning Best Pop Album of 2013. Her sophomore record ‘Ask Me Anything’ gained global attention, seeing album track ‘Moon Shines Red’ featured on American TV series Pretty Little Liars.

Special guest for the evening is the very talented Jenny Mitchell – Dunedin singer / songwriter (one New Zealand’s brightest musical talents). Jenny is a songwriter that blends alt-country, folk, and Americana into her own captivating style. At 19, Jenny Mitchell has won a NZ Gold Guitar Award, MLT Songwriting Award, Southland Entertainer of the Year Award & played to audiences in Sweden, Ireland, Australia & countless shows in NZ. Her debut album, ‘The Old Oak,’ debuted at number 1 on the NZ Country iTunes Charts, number 2 on the Independent Music NZ Charts & received critical acclaim from around the globe.

Jamie McDell and Jenny Mitchell collaborated on a song previously. Both artists will be performing independently and together during the show.

This evening will be in support of Heart Kids NZ (Otago Branch) – a charity that supports over 200 Heart Kids clients (children & adults) and their families in Otago. 12 Babies a week are born in NZ with a Congenital Heart Defect (the highest incidence of childhood illnesses in NZ) that very often devastates families. Heart Kids NZ’s mission is to provide lifelong support to all affected by a childhood heart condition or heart disease acquired through childhood.

House information

Bar service

Our bars have a selection of New Zealand wines and beers as well as juices, water, light snacks and ice creams. The bars will be closed five minutes before the show’s published start time.


We pride ourselves on being one of the most accessible venues in the city. We have flat access through our main doors and staff are more than happy to help with the doors if needed. Taxis can drop off and pick up patrons from outside these doors and we can order a taxi for you after the show.

There are accessible toilets on the lower level and a roomy lift provides access both to these facilities and to the Stalls seating. Seats in the Circle are accessed via several flights of stairs so we recommend patrons with mobility difficulties book seats in the Stalls.

We have seven dedicated wheelchair spaces and our events are available via an augmented hearing assistance system.

We also have opera glasses available for hire for $5 at the Box Office – just ask when you come in.

We encourage our patrons to discuss their needs with us so we can ensure they enjoy the show.

Theatre Etiquette

People come to the Regent Theatre to have a great night out. So everyone has a good time, we ask all our patrons to be courteous to those around them.

  • Please turn off all your electronic devices before you come into the auditorium.
  • If you have taken snacks from our bar back to your seat, try not to rustle when the house lights go down.
  • If you are late to a show, get comfortable in our bar area until we can turn the house lights back on so you can find your seat.
  • Camera flashes occasionally make performers stumble – over their lines or their feet – so we prefer that you don’t use flash (or any other) photography.
  • Please keep your feet on the floor – someone counting the beat on the back of your seat can be distracting.
  • Dancing in the aisles sounds like fun but it might make our Circle collapse. If you really need to dance (and it’s the right sort of show), please book seats in the Stalls or make your way out to the foyer.
  • We encourage you to introduce your children to the arts, but please also teach them to watch and listen quietly and peacefully.
