Va­ri­ety: A Kiwi Com­edy

South Canterbury Herald - - TEMUKA NEWS -

Ti­maru’s very own Kiwi com­edy.

Director Catherine May Smith has writ­ten more than 25 shows and was keen to have a crack at writ­ing one, Naylor said.

Va­ri­ety: A Kiwi Com­edy is set to make fun of the pol­i­tics of Ti­maru and in­clude a se­lec­tion of mod­ern and clas­sic Kiwi tunes.

‘‘The show is very top­i­cal with the re­cent elec­tions, and the char­ac­ters are a won­der­ful se­lec­tion of ex­treme per­son­al­i­ties try­ing to get on in life.’’

The story fea­tures ly­ing lo­cal MPs, am­a­teur drama b****s, fraz­zled hus­bands, nosey lo­cal re­porters, a beige women’s choir and many more of the char­ac­ters that pro­vide Ti­maru’s com­mu­nity with Va­ri­ety.

‘‘The show is very funny with plenty of clas­sic Kiwi mu­sic, I’m sure you will find your­self sing­ing along to one or two. You may find your­self iden­tify with one of the char­ac­ters. The ques­tion is, will you vote for The Na­tion Party and Moira Frank­ton or do you find Shirley Tem­ple­smith more to your lik­ing,’’ Naylor said.

Va­ri­ety: A Kiwi Com­edy will be per­formed at 123 Stafford St, bar opens at 6.30pm, show from 7.30pm, will be staged on Novem­ber 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25. Tick­ets $65, in­clud­ing din­ner, avail­able from iticket.co.nz/ events/2017/nov/va­ri­ety-a-ki­wicom­edy
