The Funnybones Xmas Comedy Special

November
Fri 21st: 7:30 - 9:30pm

If you've ever wondered what the panto "Cinderella" might be like when crossed with the popular British radio comedy show "I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue", then all will be revealed in The Funnybones Xmas Comedy Special on November the 21st.

The Funnybones, a group of locals with a talent for comedy, have already performed two homages to Clue ('the antidote to panel games' as the British comedy show is known) over the last twelve months. Both shows were popular with fans of the show and newcomers alike.

This time around, The FunnyBones team have two 40-minute Xmas-themed shows lined up, including Cinderella Panto style. As in previous shows, there is a 20-minute interval between the two shows for everyone to catch their breath. The popular musical rounds of 'One Song to the Tune of Another' and 'Pick Up Song' will feature, as well as the opportunity for joining in the Panto with cries of "Look out behind you!" and "Oh No He Didn't" "Oh Yes He Did", and all done in the best possible taste.

The PG-rated show starts at 7.30pm and promises to be a full-on fun evening with both shows being recorded for later broadcast on Waiheke Radio.

Doors and bar open at 7pm.

Vicar of Dibley

December
Thu 4th, 11th & 18th: 7:30pm
Fri 5th, 12th & 19th: 7:30pm
Sat 6th, 13th & 20th: 8:00pm
Sun 14th: 2:00pm

This much-loved British comedy comes to Waiheke's stage specially for Christmas with a superb local cast and with director Stephanie Wilkin (ex-Shortland Street) at the helm.

A magnificent array of Waiheke comic talent brings the well-known TV show to life.

The village of Dibley is appalled when, shock-horror, a woman is appointed as vicar of the parish church.

Poking the borax at petty-minded small communities everywhere, this very British comedy unpicks themes of prejudice, love and (of course) the universal appeal of chocolate.

Stephanie Wilkin (AKA Shortland Street's Meredith Fleming) has been lured out of her Island seclusion to direct in her home town of Oneroa. "I couldn't have found a better cast if Dawn French herself had popped in to audition," she confides. "Katharine Holgate is a delight: audiences will love her. We have some very experienced comedians on the Island who are enjoying the hell out of this iconic script."

"It's our last play of the year, and its going to be a cracker!" says Linda Savage (one of the producers) from Waiheke Theatre Company.

This is the perfect show for the Christmas season, so book now as tickets will be selling fast.
