Ilona Rogers and Cathie Harrop plus supporting musicians come to Hamilton for two concerts of the music and stories of New Zealand women in World War One. “They Also Serve” looks at a part of our history which has been largely overlooked in the current centenary commemorations of the Great World War of 1914-1918. Cathie and Ilona will bring you the tales and the music of the women who stayed in NZ and helped their men from the other side of the world in some very unusual and sometimes amusing ways. Some 700 women left New Zealand to serve as nurses, and in similar roles, with the NZ Forces overseas and those from allied countries. Sadly some never returned. Their stories are thankfully not neglected.

Two performances Saturday 30th April - 2pm and 7pm
All proceeds go to Riverlea Theatre's Land purchase fund. Help us save our land!
