Raunchy night out to go on tour

The Northland Age - - Local News -

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.
