French For Rabbits - The Overflow Single Release Tour

FRIDAY AUGUST 6, 8:00PM

Under The Rader and 100% Good present French For Rabbits on tour.

French For Rabbits are back on tour. The tour follows a scattering of spellbinding performances back in April and an appearance in the Mansfield: In Her Own Words concerts.

The band are on the brink of sending a flurry of goodness our way over the coming months with their third album due out in November, and a string of singles and videos about to surface. The next single, coming soon, is called "The Overflow" - the title track of this forthcoming record. Following on from Decembers' "The Dark Arts", the next single is a firm fan favourite already - a light-as-a-feather bop rationalising anxiety, also described as the most optimistic song you may ever hear about panic attacks.

Keep your eyes peeled for this in the coming weeks and more details of the tour including special guest announcements.

Who Are We?

SUNDAY AUGUST 22, 2PM

Toi Warbrick, Kane Parsons, Tanu Gupta, Sue Pugmire, Ling Wang  and Tania Kopytko delve into Who Are We? through music, dance, theatre and ngā taonga pūoro. This project is a response to the Palmerston North 150 year celebration.

How quickly we can lose our history, forget those or what came before, or forget the meaning of what we have now. Do we value our local stories? Do we hear or see them enough? Do we tell of our own struggles, to be who we are now - in this city? Who we are can be so many things.

The grand artistic ladies of Palmerston North Evelyn Rawlins and Gwen Gibbs will be brought to life, we will explore flax farming, Te Marae o Hine, the life of a farming woman and the significance of our diverse cultural heritage.

Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 4, 7:30PM

A runaway success in London’s West End, at successive Edinburgh Festivals, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and right across the USA, this is a hilarious send-up of classical music, which has established Australian pianist, David Scheel, as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge.

Beautiful music, and musical fun performed in so many accents/voices that David has also been compared to the late Robin Williams, and Peter Ustinov. Hear a familiar tune played in the styles of the old masters + an i-Pod; two famous pieces played simultaneously, one with the right hand, one with the left, plus his “translation” of the lyrics of Waltzing Matilda, already a comedy classic.

Simple Truth Theatre presents Come First and Vagina Monologues

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 7:00PM
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 9, 7:00PM
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 10, 7:00PM

Directed by Rhian Firmin & Poppy Serano
Simple Truth Theatre Presents a double billing of:

‘Come First’ 
A newly devised work created collaboratively by a group of strong local wāhine who are working together for the very first time. Come First gives the audience snapshots into the lives of these wāhine and is a celebration of the wāhine in our community. The piece is open and non-linear in it’s telling and allows these fierce wāhine a safe space to allow their voices and stories to be heard.

AND

‘The Vagina Monologues’
 By Eve Ensler

This small but dramatically funny, tender, provocative and ultimately political piece is a series of interviews with a diverse group of women about their vaginas: young and old, married and single; heterosexual, bisexual, and lesbian; working class women, professional women, and sex workers; women of various races and more.

The creation of this particular showing so far has seen this local stellar all-female cast unpicking the script, diving into the stories of the of the Vagina Monologues and focussing on finding connection and communication.

They have been uncovering the truth and heart in each and every women’s voice and explored many topics such as: sex, relationships, sexual violence, sex work, menstruation, and more, and we get to meet women from all corners of the world. R16 - these pieces contain some coarse language, sexual references and sexual abuse references.

Niko Ne Zna

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 10, 8:00PM

Combining driving rhythms, melodic brass and beautifully alluring vocals, Niko Ne Zna creates unforgettable moments for their audiences. The 9-piece band have firmly cemented themselves as one of New Zealand's premiere and sought after world music groups, complete with wonderfully hypnotic melodies and cerebral rhythms that draw from the Balkan region.

Based in New Zealand’s creative and cultural capital of Wellington, all nine members are formidable instrumentalists and composers in their own right. Their current lineup consists of two trumpets, soprano saxophone, bass and tenor trombones, sousaphone, balkan bass drum (tapan) and snare drum, an exotic cocktail of instrumentation and musicianship that creates an atmosphere and vibe like no other. To top it off, their vocalist/percussionist Nikkie Rich sings in multiple languages, including Serbo-Croatian, Romani, Macedonian, Greek and English.

In addition to creating a strong back catalogue of original music, they have become notorious for their immense live shows that display undeniable passion, fuelled by their adoration for bringing people of all walks of life together. Choreographed dance moves and captivating theatrics fuse in harmony with their music, regardless of whether they’re performing impromptu on the streets, doing roaming/acoustic shows or letting loose on the big international stage.

2021 marks the band's 10 year anniversary. Over the decade, they have regularly toured their home islands of New Zealand, and have performed multiple sold out shows in Australia. They were showstoppers at the WOMAD Festival NZ in 2019, have had three of their original songs featured in the internationally-acclaimed film 'What We Do In The Shadows', and have released two well-received full albums.

Currently in the studio working on their 3rd album, their next piece of work guarantees more of their signature grooves and uplifting vibes that'll keep fans dancing, singing, clapping and stomping from the kitchen to the car, throughout the night.


The concert is General Admission and we are removing the front three rows of seats to create a dance floor so you can come on down and get with the rhythm.

Chamber Music New Zealand presents Another Night In Vienna

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 7:30PM

“Welcome to Vienna! My name is Wolfgang, and I’ll be your tour guide this evening…

Here, as we near the end of the nineteenth century, Vienna is the very heart of the famous Habsburg Empire. Caffeine addicts, worry not, this is a café society. Art lovers – this is a cultural centre. We’ll experience it all. Follow me!

However, please do not stray from the tour path. Or you may find yourself confronted with the erotic ‘pornography’ of artists Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. Or telling your secrets to neurologist Sigmund Freud. Or lost down some dark alley listening to the radical new musical ideas of composers Arnold Schoenberg, Berg, or Webern. And if you really venture into the shadows, you might find lurking there a failed art student who will change the course of the twentieth century. Consider yourself warned!

But enough doom and gloom. I’m pleased to see you all dressed up as it’s very likely you’ll be dancing to waltzes by Strauss at some sumptuous ball before the night is through. Just another night here in Vienna!

Donald Armstrong, associate concertmaster for the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, leads members of the Amici Ensemble and 2020 NZCT Chamber Music Contest winners Ravelation for ANOTHER NIGHT IN VIENNA – blending letters, ephemera and chamber music into a dramatic journey through one of the world’s most important cities during one of its most fascinating periods.

Child (Under 17 years) $20

Kim Bailey Productions presents Macbeth

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 12, 7:30PM

Witches. Political intrigue. Murder. It is foretold Macbeth will one day be king of Scotland. But there’s a lot of bodies to go till he’s top of the pile…

See Shakespeare’s most terrifying tragedy done properly: with killer battles, demoniacal witches, audience interaction, and lots (and lots) of blood.

This is real theatrical magic, starring nationally touring Shakespearean actress, Katie Boyle, as Macbeth, and Salome Grace Neely (TV’s Westside) as Lady Macbeth.

Five professional touring actors are bringing Macbeth back to rip-roaring life. Don’t just see the story of an insatiable lust for power. Experience it.

Produced by Kim Bailey: Grooves! South Island Tour, Nutcracker Sold-Out Season – Theatre Royal
