By Dean Parker
Directed by Conrad Newport
Starring Andrew Laing
Following hugely successful seasons at BATS and Circa in Wellington, Dean Parker’s Wonderful comes to Auckland.
Brother Vianney has a calling.
To educate the boys in his classroom and to help them become good, caring Catholic citizens.
A larger-than-life presence, he calls upon his showbusiness background and treats his class to the quirky insights that he has discovered from the popular films and romantic musicals of the 1950s.
Fall in love with Brother Vianney in this undeniably theatrical, whirlwind of an education, filled with extraordinary wisdom, plenty of laughter, some great show songs and heart-breaking pathos.
