Micetro Season: Monday 5, Tuesday 6 May Time: 6.30pm Tickets: $12 waged $10 concession Fresh from winning the Best Comedy award at Fringe NZ, Micetro, the hit improvised comedy game show is back for the 2003 Wellington Championship Season! Just who will make it though to be crowned the ultimate Micetro for 2003 - come and see!

The Horror...The Horror Season: Tuesday 6 May Preview, Wednesday 7 - Saturday 10 May Time: 8pm Tickets: $16 waged $14 concession ($10 preview) Thought provoking, controversial comedy from multi-award winning team Michelle A'Court and Jeremy Elwood. Standup gets its teeth back in this irreverent look at the world at war - internationally, domestically and personally. From the military posturing in Iraq to the conflict in our own living rooms, from guns in our streets to bombs in our hearts - The Horror...The Horror will be unlike any other comedy show you will see in New Zealand.

Sully O'Sullivan is Scriptless Season: Wednesday 7 - Saturday 10 May Time: 6.30pm Tickets: $14 waged $12 concession - group discount available One man, four characters, no script! He's an award winning stand-up comedian, an award winning improviser, a 2003 Billy T Award Nominee and boldly going where no comedian has gone before with NZ's first ever one man improvised comedy show. Don't miss the torture as one man struggles to create an entire piece of improvised theatre using nothing but his addled brain.

Talent Season: Wednesday 7 - Saturday 10 May Time: 9.30pm Tickets: $14 waged $12 concession It's Christmas Eve. Verity Walker has been wrapping gifts down at the mall for ten days and ten late nights. The ghosts of Christmas pasts are about to rattle their chains. Plagued by credit card debt, errant family members and American Superstars of Rock's heart felt renditions of Christmas Carol favorites, she's only got hours to go before she leaves the mall forever. She must make it though, Hopefully she will make it through - a dark one woman show about making it through. Written and performed by Gabe McDonnell, directed by Annie Millard.
