Wednesday 20 November: Party with the Aunties!!

When did you last party with your aunties? Well, they’re inviting you to join them and other members of Staff Women’s Caucus on Wednesday 20 November at the North East Valley Bowling Club for a special event staged by WOW! Productions.

WOW! Productions 'Party with the Aunties' event page

Party with the Aunties is a celebration of a Kiwi family, with a good singalong vibe... you may see someone you recognise.

This original NZ work was created by Mosgiel-born Erina Daniels and the original cast of 2011. It has since toured to many regions and festivals including Nelson, Christchurch and Taranaki Arts festivals, and has enjoyed representing theatre of Aotearoa at the 2016 Festival of Pacific Arts, in Guam.

Party with the Aunties takes place in local clubs, bars and community halls. You are invited to be a guest at Uncle Angus’ 50th birthday party - the show will happen around you.

Singing along is not compulsory, but it will be a fun way to lead into the end of year and to celebrate the start of Summer!

  • When: 7.30-9pm, Wednesday 20 November
  • Where: NEV Bowling Club is at 139 North Road, NEV, and has plenty of parking.
