Raunchy night out to go on tour
The Kerikeri Theatre Company is preparing to stage what might well be its raunchiest production to date — and it’s going on the road.
Boasting a slew of local talent, the “hilarious and cheeky Kiwi comedy” Ladies’ Night will play at venues from Russell to Kaitaia from June 22 to July 6.
The strictly R18 show is about a group of blokes who are down on their luck and keen to make some money. After overhearing a professional strip show going on in their local pub, they begin a journey of discovering what it is that women want.
Through their own trials and tribulations, they duly put together a performance for the ladies to remember.
Ladies’ Night, first performed at Auckland’s Mercury Theatre in 1987, is billed as the most commercially successful play in New Zealand’s theatre history.
It had several national sell-out tours in the UK, has been translated into 16 languages, and continues to play worldwide to popular acclaim.
Directed by Janna Sicely and choreographed by Alannah Curtis, the Far North version stars Tom Evans, William Henley, Adam Parmenter, Sjoerd Vink, Grant Williams, Craig Pinkney and Marco van den Broek, with music from Scarlet Fever.
