Live com­edy kicks of year

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - PU­TARURU THEATRE PLAY­ERS

Re­hearsals for the Pu­taruru Theatre Play­ers first pro­duc­tion for the year are well and truly un­der­way.

The Amorous Am­bas­sador, di­rected by long time stal­wart of the theatre Hil­ton Woodroofe, is promis­ing to give au­di­ences plenty of laughs when its cast takes to the stage from Thurs­day, April 27.

The play cen­tres around Harry Dou­glas (aka John Mclean), a new Amer­i­can Am­bas­sador to Great Britain.

When he tells his fam­ily he is go­ing to Scot­land to play golf, his wife and daugh­ter an­nounce week­end plans of their own. This is when the fun be­gins.

Pu­taruru Theatre Play­ers mem­ber Jay Ward said it was not one to be missed.

‘‘Their newly hired but­ler Perkins watches sto­ically as each leaves and se­cretly re­turns for a ro­man­tic ren­dezvous in what is sup­posed to be an empty house,’’ she said.

‘‘Harry’s sec­re­tary and Cap­tain South of the Ma­rine Corp on em­bassy se­cu­rity then ar­rive with a bomb threat and the em­bassy is sealed off, with hi­lar­i­ous re­sults.’’

The cast will take to the stage on Thurs­day 27, Fri­day 28, and Satur­day 29 at 7.30pm.

From Wed­nes­day, May 3-5 din­ner will also be avail­able at 6.30pm be­fore the shows at 7.30pm

Book­ings can be made by call­ing 883 7309.
