Collab Project with Bats
Inspired people, new ideas, innovation and exciting performance are the lifeblood of theatre practice in Aotearoa New Zealand. BATS Theatre’s Purpose/Kaupapa is to provide a supportive, professional and accessible theatre venue that fosters the development of practitioners, audiences and New Zealand performance work.
Public Service Announcements returns to BATS with Christmas at the Beehive.
Public Service Announcements enjoyed a sold out season in the 2012 New Zealand International Comedy festival and has become a much loved favourite with Wellington audiences, including the politicians featured in the show!
Your very generous pledge will go towards the 15 very talented actors which make this show so successful. This has project has been a real labour of love for everyone involved in the five previous seasons and we would love for the cast to be paid for making you all laugh at the state of our political system and the people who control it.
‘The cast brought continual waves of laughter from the audience to make
this laugh-a-minute show a great piece of political satire and very
entertaining.’ - Ewan Coleman, The Dominion Post.
Synopsis of the Xmas Show
As parliament closes down for the year, National just wants to go home. But the Prime Ministerknows how to rally his troops, and organises one final caucus dinner to lift their spirits.
Meanwhile Labour are more interested in trying to land some final points for the year, the Greens can't decide if celebrating the commercialism of Christmas is in line with their philosophy, ACT need to avoid unwanted xmas presents, United won’t choose which Christmas party to attend, the Maori Party and Mana look for a miracle, and Winston says “Bah humbug” to them all.
Then a sudden spiritual reckoning begins to unravel everything…
