Te Awamutu Light Operatic Societies (TALOS) final show for the year takes to the stage at the end of the month offering a variety show for audiences.

The Woolshed Variety Show, a multi-act theatrical and musical performance, involves comedy sketches from Dave Moore and Lesley Wolstenholme, comedic musical selections from Alice Collins and Sarah-Jane Yates and it is all topped off with a hilarious one-act play by David Tristam, Last Tango in Little Grimley, directed by Susanne Bond.

The final act tells the story of a small amateur dramatic society struggling to bring in the punters, until their chairman solves their problems with one final suggestive show. The play features some well-known faces, Noldy Rust, Tracy Ellis and Graham Pollard alongside newcomer Sarah O'Connor.
