"There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them" - Vicki Baum

A fabulous new comedy about the lives, loves and misadventures of a folk-dancing class, A Shortcut to Happiness has all the usual Hall trademarks - shrewd observations, much mocking of Kiwis' curious customs, and of course, plenty of laughs.

The beautiful Natasha, a recent immigrant from Russia, teaches the class to supplement her income, meet Kiwis and improve her English. Among the students are man-hungry Coral, golfing friends Laura and Janet, recently widowed Ned, U3A Bev and henpecked husband Ray. And after each class they all gather at Ned's for coffee and a chat...

Catchy rhythms, funky folk tunes, syncopated steps and comical calamities are the order of the day as all the characters learn to gyrate with skill and expertise - "tripping the light fantastic".

A Shortcut to Happiness is, quite simply, another Roger Hall great night out!

$25 ticket specials: Friday, 13 April and Sunday, 15 April.

Elena Stejko, Peter Hayden, Donna Akersten, Catherine Downes, Tim Gordon, Carmel McGlone, Matthew Pike, Jane Waddell.
