Roxy Live Presents
The Merry Wives of Windsor
 
 Shakespeare's comedy, performed solo!

Sir John Falstaff, the fat knight, is coming to town. Short of money to pay his men, Falstaff attempts to woo Mistress Page and Mistress Ford at the same time. When the wives discover his intentions, they seek revenge - getting the whole town of Windsor involved in the process! Featuring the infamous knight, a Welsh parson, a flamboyant hotel owner, a drunk pickpocket, and many more memorable characters.

This interactive version of the play brings the bard's crazy array of characters to life, all played by one (very fit) actress. Visit the town of Windsor - maybe you'll have the chance to interact with Falstaff yourself...

"Katie Boyle is an exceptional actress" - Theatreview
"Irresistibly funny, and a wondrous spectacle" - Art Murmurs

Performed by Katie Boyle

The Kugels
 
 Take 3 former NZSO players, an Arts Laureate composer, a bass player of renown, a charismatic singer and you have the Kugels!

 The ensemble has been together for 10 years now, and has completed nationwide tours for Arts on Tour NZ and Chamber Music New Zealand, as well as performing as guest artists at several NZ festivals.

The music is wild, passionate and haunting and makes you want to dance!

The Kugels recorded a second CD in October 2020 and it will be available at this concert. Their first CD was voted in the top 10 by the Auckland Herald in 2017.
