In association with Arts on Tour and Creative NZ, Tokoroa Little Theatre presents: Hot Pink Bits with Penny Ashton.

Hot Pink Bits – all singing, all dancing and all wrong!

Performed over 120 times Hot Pink Bits is a risqué but tasteful, laugh a minute musical revue from NZ’s own globe trotting comedienne Penny Ashton, (Breakfast TV, Radio NZ National).

Resplendent in a hot pink corset and strung up in fishnets, Ashton will sing, dance and pontificate on pornography, prostitutes and Lockwood Smith in a burlesque romp through the knickers of the global sex trade.

Her Pinkness is back in Godzone after touring the world where she gathered sparkling reviews for her award-nominated show which trawls the ins and... outs of the international sex industry.
It’s crammed full of titillating facts and hour glass figures that will tell you all about the lives of the he’s, she’s, and he-she’s that make a living in the world’s oldest profession.

R18 show.
