Ticket Vendor:

Cassette Nine and Va-Va-Voom Productions, who brought you A Very Rocky Horror Halloween and Classique/Erotique are bringing you something a little bit... silly. Presenting our next instalment, the slapstick burlesque variety show: TOMFOOLERY. How lovely jubbly!

Inspired by the likes of British comedy greats such as Monty Python and The Benny Hill Show, we've rallied up some of NZ's best vaudeville and burlesque talent, who will keep you entertained with funny talk, burlesque striptease, mime, sing songs and more fun than you can poke a stick at. Rather appropriate considering it's the day before April Fools, isn't it?

The entertainers on the TOMFOOLERY bill are:

Miss la Vida - The Princess of Parody.

Lilly Loca - Putting the Va-Va-VOOM into Vaudeville.

Ruby Spice (Hamilton) - Heating up the Night since 2012.

Looney Rouge - Serving Sumptuous Servings of Sexy Swing.

Patty Haag - Ugliest Drag Queen in Central Auckland.

HuGo Grrrl (Wellington) - Mostly-Male Stripper.

With your humdinger of a host Mr Fungus (Wellington) - NZ's Loudest Mime.

Exclusive VIP entertainment provided by Miss la Vida on her Banjolele & Lucky Thirteen Entertainment. Such fun!

The sponsors for TOMFOOLERY are:

Anthony Bayer Hair

Arkham City Comics


Cassette Nine

Jasmine Tease

Bambina Burlesque Academy

Va-Va-Voom Productions

Otherwise, corral your best pal, dress to impress and nab yourself one of our GA tickets for $25.00pp + BF. Why not make a night of it and bring a whole ensemble!

Although it was completed over two years ago, Roddy Doyle's first original screenplay in over eighteen years has only just arrived in New Zealand. It's been well worth the wait. More>>

Simon Nathan: No Ordinary In-Laws

The title of this short memoir by Keith Ovenden is misleading – it would be better called “Bill, Shirley and me” as it is an account of Ovenden’s memories of his parents-in-law, Bill Sutch and Shirley Smith. 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>>
