Show packed like a six-shooter

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

‘‘I Wanna, Wanna, Wanna, in the Wild, Wild West!’’ So goes the ex­cit­ing and pow­er­ful open­ing num­ber in the Lucky Strike Saloon and it just gets bet­ter and bet­ter.

Pu­taruru The­atre Play­ers are stag­ing How the West Was Warped’ by Simon Den­ver. Di­rected by Tina Ward the show has a cast of 40-plus chil­dren from the greater South Waikato area. Toko­roa, Pu­taruru and Mata­mata chil­dren are well into re­hearsals for the The­atre’s 2013 opener. All the glam­our, pace and sense of ad­ven­ture that you’d ex­pect from the Wild West is packed like a six-shooter into this fab­u­lous show.

The great char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion that typ­i­fies Simon Den­ver’s ac­tion-packed scripts is at its best in this cow­boy com­edy and is a show not to be missed.

How the West Was Warped is on the last week of the school hol­i­days, April 27 till May 4. Look for ad­ver­tise­ments for fur­ther de­tails.
