Entertaining lineup awaits theatregoers
Porirua Little Theatre will return to its popup theatre in the central city next week for a twonight- only reprise of Shirley Valentine.
Maryanne Stella will embody the play’s namesake, a disillusioned housewife who has spent more years talking to the wall than she cares to remember. When Shirley gets offered a trip to Greece, she has the chance to fulfil a dream and to discover herself again. The one-character play is on March 29 and 30.
During April 5 and 6 the troupe return for another brief season, this time Coaltown Blues, a one-man-show starring Chris Green.
It is billed as an intensely personal play with music, depicting both the tragedy and comedy of growing up poor in a West Coast mining town. It is both a celebration and a lament for the workingclass roots from which Green came.
To book, ring 386 3717 or email poririualittle firstname.lastname@example.org. One show $20, both shows plus a snack plate is $32.50.
Meanwhile, auditions for Porirua Little Theatre’s major production for the year, The Witches of Eastwick, will be held on March 23 and 24. To book an audition, contact Zelda on 830 4173 or email email@example.com.
