Chirst Almighty: Late Shows Added

This week is the last week for you to catch the hilarious Christmas show at The Basement, Christ Almighty!

To cope with demand, two LATE SHOWS have been added - Thursday and Friday, 10pm!

The critics have loved it:

"Natalie Medlock and Dan Musgrove's masterpiece script captures the essence of human and heavenly's hilarious.

This isn't a show to take the family to, and it's not for anyone who is offended by blasphemy. If however, you don't take things too seriously and think the PC Brigade's time is over, make sure you go along. I can't predict what (or who) you'll get when you do - which is why I'll be back myself."

Paul Simei-Barton, NZ Herald
To cope with demand, two LATE SHOWS have been added - Thursday and Friday, 10pm!

Get thee to The Basement Theatre to see this hilarious roller-coaster of a Nativity Story! With a cast of 40 talents from stage and screen, you won't know who you'll see on the night!

His presence is pervasive through the book. All three participants are (or were) eloquent, strongly-opinionated intellectuals who have made significant contributions to different aspects of New Zealand life. Their interactions were often complex and difficult... More>>
