We are a group of Wellington theatre enthusiasts dedicated to bringing innovative and exciting theatre to Wellington audiences. Our next production is Zanna, Don't! in April/May 2013.
Backyard Theatre and Speakeasy Theatre Ltd are very excited about their first production for 2013. We are producing the New Zealand premiere of the hit musical Zanna, Don't! Written by Tim Atico, Zanna, Don't! premiered in New York in 2002. Its bubble-gum pop score was an instant hit with audiences and received great reviews.
Described as a 'musical fairytale' it centres around Zanna, a love fairy, whose job is to find people with 'extra love' and pair them with their perfect match. Guys with the guys and girls with the girls, nothing could be more perfect! That is until two rebel opposite-sex Heartsville High students create a storm of heterophobia by falling in love. It's up to Zanna to 'make the world safe for heterosexuals', but what cost will he pay to create a safe world in which his friends can love in peace?
Its fun script and score make Zanna, Don't! a perfect show for Backyard and Speakeasy Theatre Ltd to produce and we know the Wellington public will embrace this simple, reflective and topical love story. Performing from 25 April at the Gryphon Theatre, show us your 'extra love' and mark a place in your diary for Zanna!
