Lucy James and Tracey Carter from the Waihi Drama Society called in to chat with Brian Gentil about ‘The Pink Hammer’. Lucy had made it into the studio after ‘cups on’. Listen in to our podcast to find out more.

Tracey and Lucy talked about how rehearsals have moved to ‘scripts down’ and shared a little tease about Woody and the story that evolves throughout the production. We’ll all know people like the characters in the play, according to Lucy.

A cast of five - four women and one man provide a lot of laughs as there’s an underlying story behind each character.

Tracey plays an Irish lass who escaped her homeland and turned up in New Zealand. Lucy plays Louise, a quiet, withdrawn woman who gets drawn in and drawn out when she escapes into a women’s carpentry workshop.
The Pink Hammer was written by a Kiwi and is directed by Geraldine Broderick.

Someone in the audience is going to win a prize every performance, thanks to Mitre 10. The set is sure to inspire a bit of mancave envy too.

The lead male, ‘Woody’, is making his mark with the rest of his cast and impressing them with his characterisation.

There are just a few Opening Night Special tickets left at $15 if you want to get along to the first night but be quick to pick them up from Waihi Stationery on Seddon Street.

Tickets are $20 each or $15 for students and the play goes through from next Wednesday night, October 2, through to Saturday night, with a Sunday matinee for two weeks - until October 13.

Gold FM is also giving away a double pass to the Opening Night.
