Kings of the Gym - a comedy by Dave Armstrong
Where: Fortune Theatre, 231 Stuart Street, Dunedin
When: 6-27 February
From the author of smash hit The Motor Camp, comes this outrageously entertaining show.
Ambitious new principal Viv Cleaver wants to clean up low-decile Hautapu High School. Her big problem is the PE department, in which unfit and un-PC Laurie Connor is head teacher. He spends his days gambling and watching TV with his side-kick Pat Kennedy instead of teaching the curriculum. But when super smart and sporty student teacher Annie Tupua arrives on a placement, Viv sees her chance to make some changes.
Sparks fly, team dynamics shift, the whistle is blown and the audience are the winners! This funny and feel-good play is the perfect start to the Fortune year.
Directed by Patrick Davies
Featuring Jared Kirkwood, Rhema Sutherland, Phil Vaughan and Lisa Warrington
