UCiSA Presents Permanent Romance


The University of Canterbury Indian’s Students Association(UCiSA) is bringing to you Permanent Romance,  it’s 6th annual production at the Jack Man Auditorium on the 24 and 25 July at 7pm (doors open at 6.30pm).

The plot revolves around an Indian coming to UC to study and ends up meeting a Kiwi Indian girl who he falls in love with, but as always there are hurdles in the way before they can have their happily ever after. I guess you’ll have to watch it yourself to know if they succeed or if the boy flies back to India on a one way ticket. Obviously, all this is in true Bollywood style with lots of dancing, comedy and maybe some action even.

The event is a part of Winterlude, and tickets are selling for $15 on Dash tickets or you can buy yours at the door.
