BATS Staff held for Queen's ransom

27 March 2007

Hi BATSters,

Pollyfilla here...

Steph is a bit tied up at the moment (well, I've tied her up with a pair of fishnets!)

As you know, my show The Life and Times of the Divine Miss P opens this week, so I am holding the BATS staff hostage. If you ever want to see BATS staff alive again, come see my show. That's right, I have them struck down by sequins and got them struggling in stilettos.

If you don't come to my show they'll be wearing concrete high heels and disco dancing with the fishes at the bottom of Wellington harbour!

lots of love and big drag kisses,

Polly xxx


Dress me in Sequins - to book for any performance at BATS email with your name, the show, date and number of tickets. We will reply to confirm your booking and you can pay when you come to the show. Choice!

The Life & Times of the Divine Miss P

Wed 29 March - Sat 1 April
Tickets. $18 full / $12 concession & groups 8+

Pollyfilla and the Dazzling Fillettes return to BATS in what may be their best (and possibly last) show before Wellington's favourite drag diva heads to Melbourne.

This brand new multimedia show draws from the life long inspiration of Polly, the divine Miss Bette Midler.

Why has Bette been such and inspiration? Why is Polly leaving Wellington? And what will happen to the Fillettes? Find out at this show of great moves, stunning looks and the sultry, smutty diva herself, the one and only Pollyfilla.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
