Iolanthe (-)

Wellington G&S Light Opera presents

IOLANTHE

SATURDAY 1 JULY  7.30PM
ROYAL WANGANUI OPERA HOUSE

All this and Sullivan’s great music too! – With echoes of “Yes, Prime Minister”, Parliament and the Judiciary are joyfully lampooned in Gilbert’s farcical Comic Opera. It plays upon the helplessness of authorities when hopelessly compromised by romantic entanglement and pressures of keeping up political appearances. Gilbert’s knowing digs at the pitfalls of power have wide appeal. Musical numbers such as the Nightmare Song and When Britain Really Ruled the Waves are legend.

This sparkling production of IOLANTHE directed by John Goddard tours in June and July fully staged, performing 1 July at Royal Wanganui Opera House at 7:30pm. The cast of 32 singers and dancers with 24 piece orchestra is conducted by Hugh McMillan; live music at its best, brought to you by the producers of the 2015 “Gondoliers” and 2016 “Merry Widow” tours.

A wide range of seating reserves and concession options provide all-age and family accessibility, with group discounts for 5 and 10-up seat purchases. Refer details on www.gns.org.nz

Herman's Hermits (Wed. 19 Jul, 2017 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm)

HERMAN’S HERMITS
FAREWELL TOUR 1964-2017

ROYAL WANGANUI OPERA HOUSE
WEDNESDAY 19 JULY 7.30PM

When the 1960’s British Invasion hit worldwide, Herman’s Hermits were one of the biggest groups out of the UK with their hits, Mrs Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter, No milk today, I’m Henry VIII, There’s a kind of hush, A must to avoid and 15 other NZ Top 10 hits. After 50 years Herman’s Hermits long relationship with New Zealand which started in 1966 when they had New Zealand’s first ever No.1 ‘A Must To Avoid’ when charts begun on the 25th of March 1966 and their first tour with Tom Jones in January of that year is about to have its curtain call.

Since 1971 and the departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career in the music business, the group has never stopped. Original member Barry Whitwam has guided the band from strength to strength into one of the hardest working acts in the business -they still average more than 200 concerts per year. “It’s all about the songs”, Whitwam says, “and we were very lucky to have had a lot of hits in the sixties that people still want to hear today. We’re very lucky!”

It’s been five years since “The Hermits” last toured New Zealand on a sell out tour of NZ theatres in the main centres with Gerry & The Pacemakers, now by popular demand the UK group are returning for a 10 date tour of the NZ heartland performing in a mix of provincial towns and cities.

The 2017 World Tour for the band includes a comprehensive UK run of dates, then New Zealand followed by Australia, then back for another 3 months of concerts around the UK and Europe.

“Last of the Summer Wine”

Created and Written by Roy Clarke, Directed by Glenn Cameron.

In this new stage adaptation of the timeless television series, Foggy (Carey Knapp), Clegg (Ted Charlton) and Compo (Mike Boag) are reunited for one last adventure. Foggy has designs on winning the affections of Constance (Karen Hughes), Nora Batty (Lizz Hudson)’s niece and the long-suffering fiancée of the hapless Gifford Bewmont (Chris MacKenzie). With the help of Clegg, Foggy invites the ladies around for an evening’s entertainment but the duo are unaware that a mysterious flasher (Hamish Cameron) is stalking the local community.

Gifford has pledged to apprehend the flasher and has mounted all-night patrols in the village. While awaiting the arrival of the ladies, Foggy is dismayed when Compo turns up unannounced and who proceeds to wreak havoc on Foggy’s careful preparations as Gifford’s efforts to capture the flasher lead to mistaken identities and even more chaos. When the flasher is eventually unmasked it turns out his intentions are benign but not before our heroes are nearly undone by the enveloping madness.

If you are looking for fun, laughter and nostalgia look no further than this hilarious production at Repertory Theatre of “Last of the Summer Wine”.
