      500 Mile Walking Tour of How I Met My Father

      Rhian Wood-Hill is retouring his Critically acclaimed show "How I met My Father" This time with a twist. A very stupid twist but a twit. Wood-Hill will be walking to each gig in the goal of raising money and awareness for Lifeline NZ. Walking 500 miles to end up at the Proclaimers concert. 50% of all ticket sales will be directly donated to Lifeline NZ. Rhian knew just a few things about his father growing up: He was a criminal, he was charming, he was good looking, and Samoan. Being raised in Temuka, Rhian didn't have many reference points to his Samoan identity, and life experience suggests he lacks most of his father's other qualities. With a perfect balance of comedy and drama, wild anecdotes and down-to-earth moments, How I Met My Father is both honest and hilarious: An hour where you are invited to laugh wholeheartedly at someone else’s misfortune.

      Welcome To Our Village, Please Invade Carefully

      A radio play by Eddie Robson A community Theatre production by special arrangement with the New Zealand Play Bureau Ltd. The play is very funny. It is about an alien invasion of the small English village of Cresdon Green. The aliens have control and have placed a force field over the village preventing anyone getting in or out. The force field also works as a perception filter which prevents the outside world remembering that the village and its inhabitants even exist! The story mainly follows the efforts of the Cresdon Greenian Resistance Movement, made up of Katrina Lyons and Lucy Alexander with some help from Weird Patrick, as they attempt to foil the aliens in their preparation for a full invasion of the rest of the Earth. All the sound effects for the play are live on stage: from the simple act of using a keyboard to the sound, a large object makes as it crashes into the force field!
