The Court Theatre presents Mum's Choir
22 August 2005
Greetings from artscalendar.co.nz
The Court Theatre presents the NewstalkZB season of MUM'S CHOIR by Alison Quigan directed by Ross Gumbley Comedy | NZ 2004
Starring Yvonne Martin, Rima Te Wiata & Lynda Milligan, MUM'S CHOIR is a beautiful, heart-warming play about a family who celebrates life, laughter, love and music.
The O'Reilly Family were famous for their sing-alongs with a house full of noise, outrageous parties, cricket on the lawn and exuberant people singing in fierce harmony.
The children are grown now and the old house has been silent for years, but with the death of Molly, the matriarch, the family returns to the old homestead to celebrate her life and rekindle memories and music.
Written by Alison Quigan who co-wrote THE BIG O.E. and SHOP TILL YOU DROP with director and Court Theatre Associate Director Ross Gumbley, MUM'S CHOIR is guaranteed to have you bursting with laughter.
"This is undoubtedly Alison Quigan's best play to date," Court Theatre CEO Philip Aldridge says. "If you enjoyed the Court's recent production of TAKING OFF, you are sure to enjoy this, too. Come and laugh with a typical New Zealand family at the Court."
MUM'S CHOIR 27 August to 15 October 2005 Monday and Thursday at 6pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at 7.30pm There is one matinee on Saturday 3 September at 2.00pm.
Concert FM Radio Broadcast Peter Gabriel - Composer of the Week. Presented by Kate Mead Why do I feel justified to talk about Peter Gabriel? Is it because I've played cello at his studio, the Real World, in Box, a village outside Bath? Or because I've run around at night, naked, on Solsbury Hill (it's a Bath tradition)? Or because I've been to WOMAD Festivals on the beach in St Austell, Cornwall, and in the Bowl of Brooklands, Pukekura Park, New Plymouth?
All of the above and more. It's because I'm a fan, a dyed in the wool early-Genesis, WOMAD, Real World, Peter Gabriel fan and my ambition is that in six hours of Composer of the Week, Sunday 4 - Friday 9 September I can show you the various facets to this musical, social and political human being.
