Only three BATS shows til Christmas!

Only three BATS shows til Christmas! Luckily they are all potentially the greatest show you have ever seen!

Opening tonight we have the delightful, charming and utterly wonderful The Height of the Eiffel Tower. There aren't enough superlatives to describe Morgana's performance, so make sure you don't miss out. It's only on for 5 performances so get in quick as it's booking up fast.

And next week we have two openings - Minge and the BATS Christmas fundraiser Christ Almighty! Be sure to book yourself in for some festive fun - both of these shows bring guaranteed good times!

We'd also like to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS to all the nominees at this years Chapman Tripp Awards. Once again BATS leads the field with 17 noms, including 7 for Katydid making it the most nominated show of the year. We're also going to claim the nomination of our awesome Front of House manager Jackson Coe (even if it was for a Circa show....)

And don't forget to vote for the Chapman Kip awards, coming up at the end of next week. Let the good times roll!

See you at the theatre!

The Height of the Eiffel Tower
by Morgana O'Reilly and Abigail Greenwood
"...moving, funny, awful (in the best way), beautifully performed and totally worth it. Deserves to be seen by everyone." - (Michael Hurst)
"This is an exceptional piece of work on countless levels and deserves to be seen" - (Lillian Richards, Theatreview)
Tuesday 23rd November - Saturday 27th November @ 7pm (5 nights only!)

After a sell-out season at the New York Fringe and following a living room tour of New Zealand and Europe, this charming solo show starring Chapman Tripp Nominee Morgana O'Reilly finally comes to BATS! Meet the family of Terri Hulme in this hilarious and at times heartbreaking story. Described as a "perfect New Zealand comedy" and "up there with Flight of the Conchords" this is the play you have been looking for!
