Special Celebrity Stars for Bro’town Live Show

Peyow, Peyow… Special Celebrity Stars Confirmed for Bro’town Live Show!
27 Feb 2008

bro' Town Live on Stage, the world's first reality stage show (about a cartoon!), will be a star-studded affair. The crew have roped in famous faces from the show to help them tell their story, including Scribe, Flight of the Conchords, Neil Finn, Lucy Lawless, John Campbell and Carol Hirschfeld. These special celebrity guests will feature in person and via video-link during the two night live performances on Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 March as part of the New Zealand International Arts Festival.

Bro'Town Live on Stage is a sneaky behind-the-scenes look at the country's favourite comedy, jam packed full of surprises, scandals and the stuff they couldn't show you on TV! Series creator Elizabeth Mitchell, the Naked Samoans - Oscar Kightley, Mario Gaoa, Shimpal Lelisi and David Fane - and bro'Town's awesome artistic geniuses Ant Sang and Maka Makatoa, get together to tell you the true story of bro'Town, from its first days of conception, right through to the current fifth series.

bro' Town producer Elizabeth Mitchell says, "bro' Town Live On Stage will feature a mixture of the creatives telling the story of bro'Town (complete with reenactments!), animated items prepared especially for the festival, featured special guests, and even a little bit of audience participation."

Get up close and personal with some of the country's favourite performers, our most loved celebrities in a one-off multi-media show-and-tell session that brings the proudly suburban and non-pc satiric adventures of Vale, Valea, Sione, Mack and Jeff de Maori to the stage for the first-time ever!

bro'Town Live on Stage for two performances only at the St James Theatre, Tuesday 4 & Wednesday 5 March, 7.30pm with support from TV3.

Tuesday 4 March - Scribe, John Campbell & Carol Hirschfeld live in person. Flight of the Conchords, Neil Finn and Lucy Lawless via video link.

Wednesday 5 March - Scribe live in person. Flight of the Conchords, Neil Finn and Lucy Lawless via video link.
