TWO Discount Providers in one Hit!

Posted Monday 18 Jul 2016

It's Auckland Theatre Company's Next Big Thing Festival and it's at the Basement.

Both these important organisations are WIFT discount providers - so that means all WIFT members can get discount tickets to performances - like the Next Big Thing Festival featuring three brand-new world premiere shows created and performed by some of the brightest rising stars in the biz.

Until July 30, watch these young thespians sing, dance, revolt, riot, fall in love, fall out of love, lose their religion and get famous across our stage, showing you who precisely is the Next. Big. Thing. In Auckland theatre.

There are some of your fave old pros on board to mentor and direct and a live band to boot, it's going to be a great time even for those of you who aren't talent scouts or crazy stage parents (especially with those cheap as festival passes they are selling).

Jennifer's Baby

Posted Monday 18 Jul 2016

She's rich and thin and has appeared on the big screen more times than - well than she has actually BEEN pregnant. Which is nil - but you would never think that if you believed the rubbish printed about her fecundity (or lack of it) in the tabloid media.

Jennifer Aniston has had enough of the tabloids deciding she's only half the gal she could be if she would only give those ovaries a whirl...
