Megachristmas by Nic Sampson & Barnaby Fredrick

The Basement presents
Megachristmas
Written by Nic Sampson & Barnaby Fredrick

Basement Theatre are stuffing their Christmas stocking full, as even more names have been announced for their traditional end of year romp – with Megachristmas taking place December 12th to the 22nd.

Outrageous Fortune alumnus Shane Cortese and Siobhan Marshall join forces once again this festival season, with ghosts of Shortland Street past and present coming together in the form of Pua Magasiva, Harry McNaughton and Hannah Banks – who more recently was seen in The Jacquie Brown Diaries.

And whoever said politics is no laughing matter maybe didn’t account for local Labour MP Jacinda Adern, who joins these new additions in their quest to figure out where the f**k Santa is.

This just furthers the incredible ensemble the Basement Theatre has brought together so far, including: KIMBERLEY CROSSMAN, OLIVER DRIVER, BETH ALLEN, MIA BLAKE, MICHAEL HURST, FASITUA AMOSA, NIC SAMPSON, MICK INNES, BRONWYN BRADLEY, CAMERON RHODES, MICHELLE BLUNDELL, YVETTE PARSONS, THOMAS SAINSBURY, DEAN CAMPBELL, SAM BUNKALL and no doubt some other surprise names to pull out of their sack!

Penned by two of the funniest buggers to roam these Auckland streets Nic Sampson and Barnaby Fredrick, also responsible for the 2012 NZ International Comedy Festival hit Bombs Away!, have made sure this year’s stocking is full of inappropriate jokes, New Zealand celebrities and musical numbers for you to poke a candy cane at.

Where the f*** iS Santa? Join the search.
