A Performance Fundraiser for Canteen

PlayShop is proud to annouce It's a PlayShop Christmas Hullaballoo, a special Christmas performance raising funds for Canteen, supporting young people living in New Zealand with cancer.

This show will also be PlayShop's last show of the year so is sure to go out with a festive improv bang!

Prepare yourself for a mix of everything that is Christmas and PlayShop.

This show will include Christmas-themed improvisation, sketch comedy, and songs.

As always, the performers will be taking inspiration from members of the audience, and our last show is sure to contain an extra dash of holiday joy!

If the audience is well behaved there may even be a visit from Santa!

It's a PlayShop Christmas Hullaballoo is on the 5th of December at Paramount Cinema, 25 Courtenay Place.

The show will start at 9.30 pm and will last approximately 90 minutes.

The tickets will cost $15, with a $12 concession.

All performance proceeds will be donated to Canteen.

PlayShop is a Wellington-based performance company that aims to create spontaneous, thrilling theatre.

We create opportunities for people to experience the joy of playful interaction, though theatre, storytelling, education, and improvisation.

We are risk-takers, open to the potential of every moment, so that actor and audience share meaningful stories that arise from the present, and stay in memory for time to come.
