Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Friday 1st-Sunday 10th December 2023
This performance will literally spin our whakapapa and our heritage on its axis. Written by Gregory Cooper, this 80-minute hair-raising, hilarious tongue-in-cheek race through our whole history as a city and a region will be the equivalent of being put in a spin dryer on maximum revolutions.
Doug Brooks, Donna Botha and Greg Cooper himself will be the wizards that wiz our audiences through this incredible journey of our city, Nelson, Whakatū's history.
Fasten your seat belts, bring support for your sides and rubber bands for your jaw bones as the laughter, the learning and the love of our city explodes out of the Energy Centre at Founders Heritage Park in September. If you miss this, you miss breathing. This will be the answer to the doldrums of the fiscal downturn as tickets are priced so the whole family can enjoy this miraculous second outing from the Professional Theatre Company, Whakatū, Nelson.
Let me make this very clear… this is a must-see for everyone!
