Renee Lyons presents: Soo Young: The Musical!
Created by Renee Lyons Directed by Ben Crowder

Internationally Acclaimed And Chapman Tripp Winning Actress Collaborates With Revered Auckland Theatre Maker – A Side Splitting Comedy Is Born!

Chapman Tripp award winner, Renee Lyons is back with her boldest and most hilarious piece of work yet – Soo Young: The Musical. The show premieres at TheBasement, April 1st – 5th 2013. This dazzling work is directed by Ben Crowder, whose work has recently touched the hearts of Aucklanders with his collaboration on hit show “360 – a theatre of recollections.”

Renee was recently invited to perform at the prestigious Assembly theatre in Edinburgh, where she received rave, five-star reviews. Crowder regularly directs for Auckland Theatre Company and is the founder of ‘Theatre Stampede”, co-creator of Festival sell-out show “Head”.

Soo-Young Kim is the infamous and loveable character who narrated Lyons’ showNick: An Accidental Hero. She is back to fulfill her own dream - to create the story of her life…in musical form. How hard can it be?

The character of Soo Young was born out of Lyons’ 2 years living in Korea. “She’s an amalgamation of all the wonderful and hilarious women I met while I was there. This show will give people an insight into the culture of the many Koreans we have living in NZ and provide a huge laugh along the way.”

Soo-Young: The Musical, is a heartfelt, rollicking-good-time, following one woman's hope filled struggle to find her way through a foreign country. As we experience the triumphs and tribulations of an immigrant in NZ we are treated to the fantastical world and imagination of this delightful and familiar character. How can a life story so fabulous be left untold?

John McBeth: Our World Cup All Blacks

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind. There were often several trials, which sometimes featured over 150 players, possibly an inter island match or a final trial, then we listened to the announcement of the team on radio.
