2. WIG­GLE WIG­GLE

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

Su­per­star kids en­ter­tain­ers The Wig­gles will touch down for a show at the Re­gent on Broad­way next week.

Tues­day, you’d bet­ter get your wig­gle on! Su­per­star kids en­ter­tain­ers The Wig­gles touch down in the Re­gent on Broad­way for two shows as part of their 25th an­niver­sary Wig­gle Town Tour.

Among the most suc­cess­ful chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ers in his­tory, The Wig­gles last year gave over 200 per­for­mances around the world to hun­dreds of thou­sands of fans. The troupe is cel­e­brat­ing its an­niver­sary mile­stone with a seven cen­tre New Zealand tour and ac­com­pa­ny­ing CD and DVD re­lease of Wig­gle Town.

The fab four, Emma, Si­mon, An­thony and Lachy, will be ca­vort­ing along­side favourite char­ac­ters Dorothy the Di­nosaur, Cap­tain Feather­sword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Oc­to­pus. They’ll also be shar­ing Wig­gles clas­sics such as Hot Potato, Rock a Bye Your Bear and Fruit Salad as well as their lat­est hits Do the Pro­pel­ler, Emma’s Yel­low Bow and Si­mon Says.

To put those num­bers into some sort of per­spec­tive, there are more than 1400 Wig­gles songs in the troupe’s reper­toire.

An­thony Field, the Blue Wig­gle, is the only orig­i­nal mem­ber of the group founded in 1991, who is still per­form­ing. In 2013, a new line-up with Emma Watkins as the Yel­low Wig­gle, Lachy Gille­spie as the Pur­ple Wig­gle and Si­mon Pryce as the Red Wig­gle have con­tin­ued the troupe’s suc­cess­ful tra­di­tion. The combo has al­ready pro­duced eight CDs and DVDs and three tele­vi­sion se­ries. The Wig­gles’ Wig­gle Town Tour ar­rives on July 19, with shows at 10am and 12.30pm. Book­ings through Tick­etDirect.
