Sons of a Bitch and Mel Parsons take to the road for their 'North Island Woolshed Tour'
The Sons of a Bitch and Mel Parsons ‘North Island Woolshed Tour’ hits the road tomorrow, Wednesday October 19, and will make its first stop at South Wairarapa’s iconic Pirinoa Station. It winds up at the Belmont Regional Park Woolshed in Hutt Valley on November 13.
The 20-date travelling show follows their sell-out tour of the South Island earlier this year, which drew critical acclaim:
“This production is a world-class, quintessentially Kiwi show full of heart and humour. It’s rural but not only for country folk by any means. Do NOT miss it” –http://www.theatrereview.org.nz
Comedy duo Sons of a Bitch and award-winning singer-songwriter Mel Parsons follow the road less travelled on the North Island leg of the tour. Each night they will transform working woolsheds in places like Taihape, Taumarunui, Piopio and Ekatahuna into real-life show spaces, setting the scene for a magical night of music, theatre and comedy.
Supported by Farmstrong, in association with ANZCO, each shows kicks off with a fundraiser BBQ run by a local school or community group. A cash bar serving beer and Allan Scott wines will also be open throughout the evening.
A handful of shows have already sold out and due to shed sizes, tickets are very limited for each show. Please book online to avoid missing out, as it's unlikely there will be door sales.

Sons of a Bitch: After wowing audiences around the world with their sidesplitting five-star gem ‘The Bitches’ Box’, country bumpkin Amelia Dunbar and city slicker Emma Newborn once again take to the stage in an attempt to bridge the urban/rural divide the only way they know how – by playing dogs.
