Where: 16th Ave Theatre, Tauranga

What: The Revlon Girl

Tickets: $30

The Revlon Girl tells a very human story of a group of grieving mothers who came together as a support network for each other after the mining disaster in the Welsh mining village of Aberfan.

The disaster happened in 1966, when an estimated150,000 tonnes of colliery waste slipped suddenly and unexpectedly from the mountain above. The waste took out a farmhouse, two rows of houses, eventually making its way to the local primary school killing a total of 144 people: 116 of them children.

This is a powerful and poignant play, based on real-life stories with extreme highs, as well as extreme lows which will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions as we meet bereaved mothers Sian, Marilyn, Rona, and Jean at one of their weekly meetings offering them respite from the reality they face in the outside world.

At this meeting, some eight months after the tragedy, they have secretly arranged for a Revlon girl to come and give them beauty tips to make them feel better about themselves, despite feeling guilty for doing so.

Organiser Otumoetai Playcentre

Organiser of Theatre Night Fundraiser

Discover the magic of Playcentre at Otumoetai Playcentre, a friendly family-focussed early childhood education centre. At Playcentre our children gain knowledge through play, participation and positive guidance provided by their parents, or other family members/caregivers, who stay on session with their children. Curiosity, creativity and learning are nurtured through the wide range of experiences provided in a quality environment, supported by parents and whanau as children’s first and best educators. We believe play is the best way for our tamariki to gain the social and emotional skills to set them up for success in future life.

Join us for various fundraising events as we seek to continue offering a well equipped and supported centre for our tamariki.
