The Undiscovered Musicals of Jane Austen with Penny Ashton, Lori Dungey and Robbie Ellis.

Addicted to Darcy? Lost all Sense and Sensibility? Bonkers for Big Balls? Well put down your cross-stitching and join Penny Ashton, Lori Dungey and Robbie Ellis, as they swoon, romp, and pianoforte their way through an entirely improvised Austenian Musical. Charming suitors, meddlesome mothers, tight breeches and surprisingly well educated girls will all paint a vivid picture in song, dance and passionate hand holding.

Arts on Tour favourite Penny Ashton (Olive Copperbottom, Promise and Promiscuity, Hot Pink Bits) is back, with her most excellently accomplished friends! World Famous hobbit Lori Dungey (Lord of the Rings, Xena, Hercules, Master of the Improv Universe) and melodical Chicago based musical maestro Robbie Ellis (Second City, Radio NZ Concert, University of Otago Mozart Fellow, NZSO) will use your suggestions and spin instant literary magic as they swoon, romp and pianoforte.

“Jane Austen would turn in her grave with delight” Rip It Up.

“full of fun and frivolity” NZ Herald.
