Hastings Leader - - News - BY HAST­INGS BUSI­NESS AS­SO­CI­A­TION MAN­AGER KELLY NOLAN

Wow — we’re just un­der a week away from Fringe in the ‘Stings kick­ing off.

If you haven’t had a chance to pur­chase your ticket yet then jump on to fringeinthest­ings.co.nz or Eventfinda.co.nz or go in to your lo­cal i-SITE!

We’ve got a cracker of a lineup so let me tell you about some of our shows…

Thurs­day’s line-up starts off at 7.30pm in the Com­mon Room with Pantingo! Pan­tomime Bingo! Ex­actly what you think it is with the added hi­lar­ity of com­pet­i­tive games. A Qual­ity Piece of ARS (As­tarte, Reuben and Si­mon) is tak­ing com­edy to the peo­ple in the Com­mon­ers Green from 8pm. Win­ner of the NZ Fringe Tour­ing Prize, Jon Ben­nett, kicks off his tril­ogy of shows with Pre­tend­ing Things are a Cock at 9.30pm be­fore the amaz­ingly ta­lented An­ton Wuts (Anon Wut?) shows us what he’s made of with an evening of orig­i­nal work from 9.45pm at the Com­mon­ers Green.

Fri­day starts at 6.45pm with Julz ask­ing, What Do I Do With This Dress? Thirty-five, di­vorced and rid­dled with bag­gage, Julz still has hope . . . And that damn wed­ding dress! At the same time over at the Com­mon­ers Green, Kozo Kaos is back with his Com­edy Stunt Show. Part co­me­dian, part ma­gi­cian, part cir­cus rock star, Kozo thrilled au­di­ences last year and we’re so ex­cited to have him back again!

The Revo­lu­tion­ary Arts Ensem­ble per­form Hierony­mus Bosch at 8.30pm in the Com­mon­ers Green will be a high­light, avant-garde mu­sic and per­for­mance art. In­de­scrib­able and amaz­ing. Don’t miss out. Jon Ben­nett’s sec­ond of three shows, Fire in the Meth Lab, also kicks off at 8.30pm in Com­mon Room be­fore David Prentice takes to the stage at 9.45pm.

Quick! Be­fore they De­port Us! 10.15pm in Com­mon­ers Green sees five ta­lented co­me­di­ans with ori­gins in the In­dian sub­con­ti­nent take the stage to tell their great­est jokes and share their best sto­ries. And over at The Com­mon Room The Va­ri­ety Ball sees a sassy group of ladies per­form ev­ery­thing from cabaret to bel­ly­dance; and singing to aerial acts.

And that’s just some of the first two days. Make sure you visit fringeinthest­ings.co.nz to see the full pro­gramme and book.
