En­ter­tain­ing lineup awaits the­atre­go­ers

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

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 the­atre@gmail.com. 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 zel­damacnz@gmail.com.

Bland land: The life of a housewife comes in for close ex­am­i­na­tion in Porirua Lit­tle The­atre’s pro­duc­tion of Shirley Valen­tine.
