Shortland Street is New Zealand's longest-running TV show drama that's now getting the live musical theatre treatment.
The musical is set to make its debut this November at the ASB Waterfront Theatre and was created by actor and theatre-maker Guy Langford as well as Shortland Street producer Simon Bennett.
The musical will include iconic characters from the show, including Dr Chris Warner, Rachel McKenna, Hone Ropata and more.
Their goal is to unite Shortland Street fans in a live setting:
Hundreds of thousands of people watch every night, which is extraordinary, but I'm excited about bringing them all into the same room together at the same time,
Who knows if this will actually be any good, but it's definitely an exciting idea that we didn't see coming.
