Sons of a Bitch: From the makers of The Bitches' Box comes a hilarious new comedy show featuring a swag of delightful (and disgusting) dogs. Country bumpkin Amelia Dunbar and city slicker Emma Newborn once again take to the stage, in an attempt to bridge the urban/rural divide the only way they know how - by playing dogs. Join them as they present their signature, fast paced, multi-character, new show Sons of a Bitch. The side-splitting sequel to the 5-star gem ‘The Bitches’ Box’ - a hit with audiences from Edendale to Edinburgh, from wool sheds to glittering festivals worldwide. Visit -

Mel Parsons: After a huge year in 2015, this award-winning folk/country artist brings us a new solo show following on from her critically acclaimed new album DRYLANDS. Winner of the 2016 NZ Country Song of the Year, Mel Parsons was also a 2015 finalist for the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll Award, and is a cast member of Fly My Pretties. With a razor sharp wit and deft hand on the guitar, one of NZ’s favourite globe trotting singer-songwriters presents a swag of new songs (plus old favourites) to fall in love with.  Visit -

The Tour: Travelling by trusty horse truck (and carting a bar, seating, stage curtain, props, full production equipment and crew along for the ride) the talented trio will capture audiences once reserved for the likes of the Topp Twins, Fred Dagg, and Murray Ball, transforming working wool sheds throughout heartland New Zealand into real-life show spaces for an unforgettable night in the country. The tour gratefully acknowledges the support of our sponsorship partners: Farmstrong, ANZCO, Allan Scott Wines and
