godzone: out of the paddocks and into the shed

loonesco presents…
out of the paddocks and into the shed

An hour of hokey-pokey gumboot throwing blokes and sheep. It’s flat stick, open slather on the doodackie huru we call home.

This small but perfectly formed tiki-tour of NZ, examines everything from the hidden humour of starfish, the sensitive poetic side of the man alone, to the sticky side of adventure tourism.

Feat. Will Harris, Paul McLaughlin and Peter Rutherford as you’ve never seen them before.

Ladies bring a plate. Blokes bring a crate. Book early to ensure a good seat on the bus and remember – don’t feed the sheep.

Bats theatre
Tue 4 – Sat 15 December (no show Sun/ Mon)
6.30 pm
$18 full / $12 concession & groups of 8+
Bookings: Ph 802-4175

For a special sneak preview you can catch our sheep in a 48hr film at
