'Sons Of A Bitch' & Mel Parsons Tour

Woolsheds. Not just for sheep. Following sell-out tours from the deep south to the shallow north of New Zealand since 2012, the team who brought you “The Bitches’ Box & Mel Parsons” are excited to announce a brand new double bill show down on the farm in 2016 - ‘Sons of a Bitch’ & Mel Parsons promises an unmissable evening of music, theatre and comedy, complete with BBQ and bar - coming soon to a woolshed near you!

Travelling by trusty horse truck (and carting a bar, 200 chairs, 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.

Each show will be preceded by a fundraiser BBQ run by the local school or community group - come hungry and support your local kids! A cash bar serving beer and Allan Scott wines will also be open throughout the evening.

‘Sons Of A Bitch’
From the makers of The Bitches’ Box comes a hilarious new show featuring a swag of delightful (and disgusting) dogs. Country bumpkin Amelia Dunbar & 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.

Mel Parsons
After a huge year in 2015, Silver Scroll finalist and ‘Fly My Pretties’ star Mel Parsons brings us a new solo show following on from her critically acclaimed & award-winning new album ‘Drylands’. 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.
