Contains mature themes and references to abuse and suicide.


The Heartbreak Choir is a funny and uplifting celebration of music friendship and community that is proudly bought to you by Waipukurau Little Theatre.

In the old CFA hall on the outskirts of town, a small group of locals come together to sing and to connect.  Aseni, Barbara, Mack, Savannah and Totty have splintered from their original choir on a matter of principle and are intent on forging their own path.With their latest recruit Peter and his son Beau along for the ride, they have a new name, a space to rehearse in and a public debut booked.  All they need now is to right the wrongs of the past ... and find a song that pairs perfectly with the local wineries Sangiovese.

The Heartbreak Choir is a joyful song-filled snapshot of a devastated community learning how to heal.

We are very pleased to have been able to bring together such a strong group of talented actors and singers for this production.  We hope you enjoy it.
