Well. Who would have thunk – Rhys Darbyand Grumpy Old Women in Christchurch on the same weekend? Rhys performs at CBS Canterbury Arena on Saturday, May 31 at 8:00pm and the Grumpy OId Women hit the stage at Aurora Centre, also at 8:00pm on May 31… BUT… if you want to catch both shows, you can – the Grumpy Old Women will also perform at 4:00pm on May 31 and the previous night, May 30, at 8:00pm
Rhys is in town with his latest show, Mr Adventure, and he will be recounting travel tales so amazing you’ll swear he has made them up… from the eerie shores of Loch Ness to the misty mountains of Rwanda the yarns spring to life… nay, larger than life!
And as for the Grumpy Old Women at Aurora, three of them will be on the stage - Lynda Milligan, Jude Gibson and Geraldine Brophy – presenting a new outing called 50 Shades of Beige.
This jam-packed show includes all the most Grumpy topics... learning the art of 'Grumpy Grooming', the joy of large pants, a free nagging master class (how to get your own way without him even noticing) and beards for women, which style suit you? There’s the Complimentary Anger Management workshop, middle-aged drinking: the rules, navigating the smorgasbord of worry, voluntary euthanasia vs. retirement, how to customise an unwanted pole dancing kit and a mercifully brief Zumba demonstration.
