Christchurch rejoice! Following their smash-hit sell-out tours of rural New Zealand in 2016, the team who brought you The Bitches’ Box & Mel Parsons are finishing off 2016 with a bang - getting off the farm and bringing their hilarious night out to TOWN! The talented trio have captured an audience once reserved for the likes of the Topp Twins, Fred Dagg, and Murray Ball, and never fail to delight:

“A world-class, quintessentially Kiwi show full of heart and humour… it’s rural but not only for country folk by any means.  Do NOT miss it.” - Theatreview

After a huge year in 2015, award-winning folk/country artist Mel Parsons brings us a new solo show following on from her critically acclaimed new album ‘Drylands’. Winner of the 2016 NZ Country Song of the Year, Parsons was also a 2015 finalist for the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll Award, and is a cast member of ‘Fly My Pretties’. With a razor sharp wit and deft hand on the guitar, one of NZ’s favourite globe trotting singer-songwriters presents a swag of new songs (plus old favourites) to fall in love with. Visit:

From the pair who brought you The Bitches’ Box comes a hilarious new show featuring a swag of delightful (and disgusting) dogs. Country bumpkin Amelia Dunbar & city slicker Emma Newborn once again take to the stage, in an attempt to bridge the urban/rural divide the only way they know how…by playing dogs. Join them as they present their signature, fast paced, multi-character, new show ’Sons of a Bitch’. The side-splitting sequel to the 5-star gem ‘The Bitches’ Box’ - a hit with audiences from Edendale to Edinburgh, from wool sheds to glittering festivals worldwide. Visit
