THURSDAY JULY 28, 7:00PM
SATURDAY JULY 30, 7:00PM

Four chaotic comedies smashed together in one show. Come see a whirlwind collection of diverse raunchy comedies. We have sci-fi, a coming of age story, a mock murder mystery, a cooking show with a guest cannibal – you know, the usual genres.

I Killed Grandad: Whoever in the family killed Grandad will get his fortune. But who actually did it?

Porn Heist: Dealing porn in the early 2000s is good business. That is until he needed to smuggle his collection when his parents bought a new house.

The “Cannibal has to Get Rid of a Body on a Live Cooking Show” Show: Killing the world-famous artist – Wanksy – was always part of the plan. Trying to get rid of the body on a live cooking show, was not.

To Infinity and Be Wrong: In the distant future, space raiding has become an intergalactic sport. A young graduate finds herself desperate to impress her childhood hero, while the former star is forced to face the grief he’s never dealt with.

Join us on this wild ride!

Contains explicit language, violence, death, and sexual themes.

James Brodie: BECOMING BRODIE Tour 2022

THURSDAY AUGUST 18, 7:30PM

We are pleased to announce that Ivy Blue front man James Brodie will be hitting the road for the first time since 2019 on his first ever solo theatre tour.

The Becoming Brodie Tour will kick off in Palmerston North in August before making its way to select cities in New Zealand and Australia through to early November, performing stripped down versions of his back-catalog with Ivy Blue and renditions of his new material taken off his debut solo album Becoming (out June 24th) while sharing stories about growing up with Autism and ADHD in a new theatrical production. As you might have guessed, these shows will primarily be taking place in small to mid sized theatres instead of the more intimate venues James has performed at in recent years with Ivy Blue, bringing James back to his theatrical roots formed as a member of the ACTA acting group at the Future Te Aroha Centre where James's performing career (and these stories) began over 20 years ago.

HOMECOMING - Hammers and Horsehair

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 24, 7:30PM

In 1922 and 1923, Blenheim-born soprano Rosina Buckman made a triumphant homecoming tour of Aotearoa, bringing with her cellist Adelina Leon and pianist-composer Percy Kahn. Their farewell concert in London was to an audience of 10,000 in the Royal Albert Hall. Then between May 1922 and March 1923 they gave more than 110 performances across New Zealand and Australia. Kiwis couldn’t get enough of their own singing superstar!

A century later, Hammers & Horsehair duo Douglas Mews (piano) and Robert Ibell (cello) join forces with well-known Wellington soprano Rowena Simpson to reimagine Rosina’s homecoming in a lively concert interspersed with anecdotes from the 1922/23 tour. They will perform period classics from the tour, such as Puccini's 'One Fine Day', ‘Waiata Poi’ by Alfred Hill, Dvorak’s ‘Humoresque’ and Moskowski’s ‘Guitarre’, along with some of their own favourites.

Chamber Music New Zealand: Van Diemen's Band

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 9, 7:30PM

BORDERLANDS
From Tasmania comes a group of performers that revel in the liveliness and intrigue of borderlands. Playing music of composers who lived and worked, as fluid borders shifted beneath their feet. A musical backdrop to the tumult of the Thirty Years War and the meeting of cultures at the edges of the Holy Roman and Ottoman Empires. Julia Fredersdorff, artistic director/violin, has curated a programme that explores the sublime simplicity of music of the early baroque period, as well as works startling for their originality and spirited evocations of battles and dances—all performed with the raw freshness that audiences have come to know from music on gut strings and original set ups.

A runaway success in London’s West End, at successive Edinburgh Festivals, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and right across the USA, this is a hilarious send-up of classical music, which has established Australian pianist, David Scheel, as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge.

Beautiful music, and musical fun performed in so many accents/voices that David has also been compared to the late Robin Williams, and Peter Ustinov. Hear a familiar tune played in the styles of the old masters + an i-Pod; two famous pieces played simultaneously, one with the right hand, one with the left, plus his “translation” of the lyrics of Waltzing Matilda, already a comedy classic.

The PAUL PAUL Comedy Night

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 30, 8:00PM

Two of NZ’s best standup comedians are hitting the road together for ‘The Paul Paul Comedy Night’ - a 2 hour showcase of world class comedy from easily the best Pauls in the business.

The shows feature “NZ’s Top Professional Comedian” PAUL EGO, a legend of stage and small screen. Ego has over 25 years comedy experience and is a much in-demand live performer. His rapid wit as an MC and feature act comic has seen him described as 'The Master of Improv'. He is also well known from his years on the hit TV comedy panel show ‘7DAYS’ and as the voice of one of NZ’s leading large yellow supermarkets.

Ego will be joined by “gifted and hilarious comedian” PAUL DOUGLAS. One of the busiest live comics in the country, Douglas was the winner of ‘Best Live Show’ and ‘Best Gag’ at the 2019 NZ Comedy Guild Awards. Put simply, as it was in one particular review, Paul is “just a dude with a microphone being incredibly funny” If you haven’t already caught him on ‘7DAYS’, ‘THE PROJECT’ or the ‘TVNZ BEST FOODS COMEDY GALA’ then this is your chance to catch Paul Douglas live.

‘The Paul Paul Comedy Night’ is a show where both Pauls are the feature act. Each night they’ll draw straws or sausages or whatever else is close by, to decide who goes first and who goes second. Regardless of the order, rest assured that Paul will definitely be the best act of the night.

‘THE PAUL PAUL COMEDY NIGHT’ featuring PAUL EGO and PAUL DOUGLAS - coming to a venue either near you, or near someone you know.

Daniel Champagne

THURSDAY DECEMBER 1, 7:30PM

The young Australian virtuso, recently described as 'the finest guitar player of this generation', brings his tour back to New Zealand.

One reviewer recently wrote "Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical".

The story goes that the young singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.

The following decade has seen him release 5 studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for sropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes!

WHAT THE PRESS SAYS..
