Te Auaha students’ show is “rough, chaotic and hilarious”

News from Te Auaha
Te Auaha stage and screen students invite you to join them in their rough, chaotic and hilarious take on Wheeler’s Luck, one of the country’s most notorious plays.

Meet the locals of Bell End, a Kiwi beach town facing a big problem. An untimely demise opens the door for some drastic changes in this little corner of the world. When a property developer rolls into town it signals the possible end to the annual Bareback Festival, and the customary ready access to explosives.

A divided community begins to ask questions. Where will all the Tarkahays live? What the heck’s a Tarkahay?

Wheeler’s Luck is a wonderfully funny portrayal of a typical Kiwi town and the colourful people who inhabit it. This story has it all; raging storms, environmental messages, bad dancing, high speed horse chases and gun toting felines. Wheeler’s Luck is a heartfelt, playful comedy that recognises the kiwi in us all, we hope to see you there!

Brought to you by the first year students of the Whitireia Stage and Screen programme delivered at Te Auaha.

Dates: 23 – 25 August 7pm
Venue: Tapere Nui Theatre, Te Auaha
Ticket Prices: $20/$15
