AUSTEN FOUND – THE UNDISCOVERED MUSICALS OF JANE AUSTEN
Coming to the whole of New Zealand in 2020 with Arts on Tour
Addicted to Darcy? Lost all Sense and Sensibility? Bonkers for Big Balls? Well put down your cross-stitching and join one of NZ’s most experienced improv troupe, ConArtists, 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. It’s been ten years since they first sold out the NZ International Comedy Festival and Adelaide Fringe Festival, so they’re dusting off their bonnets and hitting the road.
Touring in May 2020
