Kings of the Gym (Opening Night)

  • Jan 19, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I know it's a little ways off, but I thought I would post the first Meetup event of 2013 before we leave for Christmas and finish off 2012. Plus, it will give us something to look forward to after the hustle and bustle of Christmas is over and done with!

So, how about we attend the opening night of Kings of the Gym, meeting for a drink and chat in the alcove before the show and sticking around for the opening night party and a free drink and nibbles after the show? Ilona will host, and it will be a fun night with a great show!

Ticket prices are the same as last year - $46 Adults, $28 Concessions, $33 Friends, $39 Groups, and $25 Under 25s. Please let me know what price you qualify for when you RSVP. As usual, all you need to do right now is RSVP - I will let you know when your ticket has been booked and is ready to be paid for. Please note: the GrabOne vouchers are NOT valid for opening night.

If you have any questions, please contact me at [masked].

Kings of the Gym

  • Written by: Dave Armstrong
  • Directed by: Danny Mulheron
  • Circa One
  • 19 January − 16 February

World Premiere

PC vs. PE!

From the team who brought you the smash hit The Motor Camp, playwright Dave Armstrong and director Danny Mulheron again combine talents to present a delightfully romantic and wickedly entertaining comedy set in a school gym.

Politically correct principal Viv cleaver is transforming low-decile Hautapu High School. The only thorn in her side is the Phys-Ed department. Unfit Laurie Connor spends his days in the gym watching TV and gambling with his talented yet unambitious sidekick Pat Kennedy. But then student-teacher Annie Tupua arrives. Could this star netballer and born-again Christian prove to be the game-changer that Viv needs? As sparks fly and different players joust for position, the only winner on the day will be the audience.

Kings of the Gym stars the brilliant Ginette McDonald (Rage, My Brilliant Divorce), Paul McLaughlin, (The Truth Game, Peninsula), Richard Dey (All My Sons) and Achusla-Tara Sutton (The Truth Game).

A comedy in two halves, Kings of the Gym looks at the really important things in life: competition, compassion, Creation … and PE teaching.


Tell us a tale about your favourite school gym teacher (past or present). No more than 200 words. Send your story to [masked]. Entries close on Christmas Eve. A winner will be chosen from entries received and notified by email. Good luck!
