Event Description

Get ready for an enchanting night of music and dance as The Wellington Footlights Society proudly presents:


Step into the world of folklore and romance as we return to the Te Auaha Theatre with this captivating bluegrass adaptation of the timeless Iron Mountain Baby folk story. Join us on a journey that weaves together two extraordinary love stories, intricately connected in a way that will warm your heart and move your soul.

Immerse yourself in the magic of yearning ballads and let your feet tap to the lively square-dance romps, brought to life by the rich harmonies of piano and banjo! 

Under the skillful direction of Stanford Reynolds, with the melodious guidance of Musical Director Michael Stebbings and the graceful choreography of Melanie Heaphy, The Wellington Footlights Society invites you to experience a night of musical theatre like no other.


Music, Book, and Story by Steve Martin 

Music, Lyrics, and Story by Edie Brickell

Presented by arrangement with Origin Theatrical on behalf of Theatrical Rights Worldwide, New York.

Don't miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to witness the blending of artistry and storytelling that will leave you breathless. Join us for a night of laughter, tears, and unforgettable moments that will resonate in your heart long after the final curtain falls.
