Variety: A Kiwi Comedy
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
