Char­lie Chap­lin to charm Plim­mer­ton

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION - By BRITTANY MANN

Char­lie Chap­lin is com­ing to Plim­mer­ton.

The inim­itable ‘‘Lit­tle Tramp’’ will ap­pear on-screen at Mana Lit­tle Theatre in The No RiffRaff Taupo Swamp Show, a va­ri­ety show with el­e­ments of re­vue.

Chap­lin’s 1917 silent short com­edy, Easy Street, will be ac­com­pa­nied by pi­anist Gil­bert Hais­man, who will also give solo piano and spo­ken word per­for­mances.

Hais­man will co- host the evening with co­me­dian Dave Smith, who is ex­pected to en­ter­tain au­di­ences with in­sights on Kiwi cul­ture, pol­i­tics and the me­dia.

The show will also fea­ture Plim­mer­ton- based quar­tet Un­re­solved As, who will play a com­bi­na­tion of coun­try, folk and jazz on in­stru­ments from man­dolin to sousa­phone.

The spe­cially crafted Plim­mer­ton Waltz, by Niels Gedge, will res­onate with au­di­ences for the first time.
