Youth Ambassador Review: Party with the Aunties
Our Youth Ambassador Beth headed along to the hilarious
show Party with the Aunties last night. Check out her
review of the show!
Its Uncle Angus' birthday party and to celebrate him finally
reaching the "residential speed limit" the Aunties have thrown him
a birthday party. Family have come all the way from Perth to
Wellington to celebrate Angus' 50th at the
Christchurch Football Club, providing plenty of drama and hilarious
Three very talented actors make up the entire cast, weaving in and
out of a dozen different characters with ease and believability.
The versatility of each of the performers was astounding, as all
three actors took their turns singing and playing the guitar. Their
charisma translated into each of the characters, which bought
excitement and energy to the piece.
In a clever use of space, the three
performers mingled with audience members in a relaxed, party-like
atmosphere at the Football Club, using the bathrooms and
interacting with bartenders to set the scene perfectly. As the
party draws to a close, the show takes a more serious tone, and
suddenly you find yourself invested in each of the characters and
praying that all will sort itself out.
The fresh, impromptu nature of this
show mixed with the talented performers, makes for a very special
piece of theatre. Be prepared hilarity, excitement, sing-alongs and
an all-round great night as you party with the Aunties!
