Silo Theatre announce extension


Silo Theatre is thrilled to announce that HUDSON & HALLS LIVE! at the Herald Theatre is having its season officially extended to December 12. The show has been delighting audiences and critics with its hilarious antics, nostalgic flair and all-out entertainment.

“Here at Silo Theatre we’re very proud to be extending the season, of our newest commission to be staged in more than 5 years. Everyone involved is ecstatic to be part of such a fun and fulfilling show - the production team have poured their hearts, minds and souls into this work. It’s affirming to see how receptive kiwis are to engaging in stories of our own heritage, celebrating our own legends.” Jessica Smith, Executive Director of Silo Theatre.

This home-grown kiwi story has proved so popular that Silo Theatre are now exploring the future possibility of touring the show throughout New Zealand and even internationally. This contemporary theatre company has been going from strength to strength since it’s humble beginnings in 2001 and as the year closes with this exuberant show, Silo Theatre are looking forward to announcing a significant programme for 2016.

Don’t miss out on the show that critics are calling “one of the must-see events of the year.”- The Lumière Reader.

“It’s very, very, very funny...Theatre rarely gets much better than this.” - Simon Wilson, Metro Magazine.

“It is a wild, joyous, booze-fuelled romp, and most certainly a very fitting tribute to two of the greats of television cooking.” –Theatreview.
