Shortland Street the Musical

November 21 2018

Over 25 years on from the shows debut, Shortland Street's enduring success has been celebrated in
brand new musical spectacular SHORTLAND STREET THE MUSICAL.

Auckland Theatre Company are producing the Auckland season of the show, before it goes on tour early 2019.

"...both playful parody and affectionate tribute, mixing the sincere and the silly in equal measure to make something truly magical... Scattered through the songs are enough knowing winks to ensure the audience never stops laughing... all the elements are here for a perfect, entertaining, rib-tickling night at the theatre that will manage a smile out of every soap cynic there is." - NZ Herald


This show about our iconic soap is sure to become a cultural icon itself! 

SHORTLAND STREET THE MUSICAL, music and lyrics by Guy Langford, directed by Simon Bennett.
Starring AAers Lisa Chappell, Kathy McRae and Tavai Faasavalu

Two Hearts Melbourne World Tour

March 29 2018

Awesome musical comedy duo Laura Daniel and Joseph Moore are taking their pitch perfect send up of modern pop music to Australia for the first time. 

"Imagine a Selena Gomez concert, but all of Selena Gomez's songs have jokes in them. And there are two Selena Gomezes. And one of them is a boy. Two Hearts have blown NZ audiences away with sold-out shows, memorable TV appearances and their songs would be on the radio if the radio stations knew what they were doing".

'Two Hearts is the show of the 2017 NZ International Comedy Festival. Hell, it might even be the show of the year of any genre.' The Spinoff

'I had mascara running down my face because I laughed so hard that I cried.' Stuff.co.nz

'You’ll find yourself wanting to sing along until you realise you don’t know the words. It’s a spectacular and surprising, top notch performance from beginning to end.' NZGirl.co.nz

Different Party wins at Adelaide Fringe

March 21 2018

Congratulations to our the 2018 BankSA Adelaide Fringe Award Winners,
especially our Barnie Duncan and Trygve Wakenshaw for taking out the BankSA Best Comedy Award:

"Trygve and Barnie whittle away the minutes in the barren office of Ruck's Leather Interiors, patiently waiting for the phone call that may or may not give them something to actually do. In between the drudgery of the 9-5, the minutiae of office existence transform into incredible slapstick as these two clown and comedy performers come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Dialogue is minimal, but jokes are plentiful in this extraordinary celebration of the banal"

We are ever hopeful that they will bring this "extraordinary celebration of the banal" down to our neck of the woods sometime soon!
