"There are two types of Maoris. 80% of them are radicals,
and 20% are decent like Winston Peters."

It's a Whanau Thing is a brand new musical production by Jamie McCaskill ( Wassup Bro ) and Kelly Kilgour.

Set in deepest, darkest Palmerston North, three guys form a band. They write and rehearse, waiting for their ultimate big break - performing live on a morning television show. Then one of the band learns he is of Maori descent, and his search for his heritage stirs the emotions of the group. Read more! or Book by Email Now!
