Arts on Tour presents Olive CopperbottomBy: Southland Festival of the Arts
13-Apr-2018, 9:00 PM Switzers Lodge, Waikaia $25
A New Musical by Charles Dickens and Penny Ashton.
Following the delicate sold out successes of Promise and Promiscuity, Penny Ashton (Radio NZ The Panel) swaps Austen for Dickens and brings orphaned hero Olive and a squalid gaggle of Victorian characters to pox ridden London life.
Will Olive find a family amongst the brothels, toffs and gruel? Or will Mrs Sourtart, Mr Fivestars or even Mr Goodsort break her heart as well as their teeth? A rollicking one-woman musical journey that will fulfil your greatest expectations and be the best of times and well… the best of times.
Director: Ben Crowder and Penny Ashton
Company: Penash Productions
