Beam Me Up

Covert Theatre in Ponsonby is running a Trek themed comedy show on July 21st / 28th.

This is the blurb from their web site:

Calling all Trekkies. Come and enjoy the brand new show from the Covert Theatre. It’s time to boldly go on a comedy adventure that’s out of this world.

This show explores the final frontier of comedy and is highly illogical as it is highly hilarious. Book your seat now before you miss out!

The site also mentions free entry if you come dressed in costume – you might want to check the conditions.

Klingalong: The Sci Fi and Fantasy Singalong

Klingalong: The Sci Fi and Fantasy Singalong may be this galaxy’s first-ever singalong event in fictional languages, and certainly the first one to be accompanied only by an accordion. Sing pop classics by Split Enz, Queen, Dolly Parton, Ginuwine, the Pixies, Lauryn Hill, and more, translated into Klingon (Star Trek), Quenya (Lord of the Rings), and Dothraki (Game of Thrones) by your host, singer / accordionist and Master of Linguistics Emma Wollum.

No previous knowledge of any of the fictional languages is required, but enthusiasm is encouraged! Shows are on 21 & 22 May – booking and pricing information on the NZ Intl Comedy Fest site.

Postscript…Emma says that if a good size group wants to go along together, she can organise a group discount. If that is you, drop us a line at the sffanz news address and we will put you in touch with her.
