Giving Dickens a punch in the chestnuts!

The Basement theatre is one of WIFT's valued discount providers. They have a great programme lined up for Christmas, so have a read and make sure you include a visit to them in the lead up to Xmas Day. And remember to have your WIFT membership card handy when you book so you can use your discount. Thanks Basement theatre!

"Hello Basement friends,

Tis the season and tis time for another Basement Christmas show!?This year we've created a musical for you, featuring an all star rotating cast of actors and celebrities including David Farrier, Antonia Prebble, Michael Hurst, Kimberley Crossman, Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Rose Matafeo + 44 others.??Written by the hilarious Nic Sampson and Barnaby Fredric, starring triple threats, Gareth Williams as Scrooge and Bree Peters as Bobbi Cratchett and directed by Sophie Roberts (Midsummer, The Pride, Pitchfork Disney), A Basement Christmas Carol is a sing-a-long spectacular that will tickle your funny bone. I just watched the closing number and that alone is worth the ticket price.??On Friday 13th December, you can come over for a Christmas dinner. Brought to you by the chefs of pop-up restaurant POPDining, experience a four course edible expression of A Basement Christmas Carol. Join us for their take on a kiwi Christmas feast.

We have a theatre raffle this year, so bring a can or a donation for Auckland City Mission and you are in the draw for some theatre tickets from us, Silo, ATC and Q as well as some Huffer gear and delicious treats.??Also we bought a real Christmas tree today so the whole foyer smells of pine!??See you soon for some eggnog and candy canes,

Love from The Basement x"
