The Rose Centre: What's on

What's on at the Rose Centre…

A Shortcut to Happiness
by Roger Hall
Directed by Sian Davis

A new, funny, Roger Hall comedy about the lives, loves and misadventures of Kiwis attending a folk-dancing class.

 Each person has their own reason for attending the class, but a common thread is the universal search for love.
 The play centres on Ned, quietly adjusting to retirement and life on his own after the death of his wife, and Natasha, a recent Russian immigrant who has taken to teaching dance to boost her income and hopefully meet Kiwis to improve her English.
 Meet friends Janet and Laura who have come to the dancing class as a change from golf or cruising! Meeting husband and wife Bev and Ray who go to all sorts of classes, all the time... and watch out for the handsome Sebastian who turns up and dances with them all!
 Enjoy catchy folk tunes, syncopated step and comical capers. There are plenty of laughs along the way and a variety of characters.
