Basement Theatre returns with its annual Christmas Show and this year it has an SF theme.
It’s day one hundred and something of orbiting the earth and things are pretty dull aboard the International Space Station. All there is to do is eat freeze-dried space pav, hook up with each other and squabble over who deserves the highly coveted role of Captain of the ship. But, when the crew discover the hidden agenda of one of their fellow space colleagues, chaos ensues. Will this ragtag bunch of dysfunctional cosmonauts be able to perform a Christmas miracle and save humankind?
A Frickin Dangerous Space-mas invites you aboard for a space adventure starring a killer cast alongside some of Aotearoa’s most beloved household names and local celebs. It’s going to be out of this world!
The season begins its Auckland run on 21st Nov and runs through to 20th Dec. You can find all the details here – https://www.iticket.co.nz/events/2019/nov/a-fricken-dangerous-space-mas
It appears that Summer Star Trek is coming back to the capital. The following announcement came through subspace…

This years show is titled The Trouble with Tribles and we’re looking for a full crew to man the USS Enterprise as well as singers for our ‘Spacebabes’ (babes of all genders required!), a full team of Red Shirt ‘Engineers’ (back stage crew) and of course, DOORS!”

“Alle Thee Dysk’s a Stage”
Sir Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then turns it up ’till the knob comes off. It’s all there—a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril.
And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, selfopinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

Rocky Horror Show author and the ‘Tran in Black’, RICHARD O’BRIEN returns to Christchurch for the first time since December 2010 when he performed on the Isaac Theatre Royal’s stage for the last time anywhere in the world, in his own creation ‘The Rocky Horror Show’! This one-off, Halloween-themed Christchurch-only show will help raise funds for the rebuild of the Isaac Theatre Royal, badly damaged in the 2011 earthquakes. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the ITR.
Richard will be “nattering away, picking up a guitar and hopefully entertaining everybody, telling stories and singing some songs. It would be perverse if I were not to sing The Time Warp, again. People would feel slightly cheated, wouldn’t they?”

Thousands of years in the future, the crew of the Time-ship Mayflower, need a hero yesterday!Enter Keanu Reeves – less cool-breeze-over-the-mountains / more solar-wind-between-the-ears.
Keanu Reeves Saves the Universe is a twisted, bawdy, silly, romp through your favorite science fiction tales where time isn’t the only thing that’s warped! This raucous, irreverent satire illegally marries The Matrix with Star Trek, Star Wars and all things Keanu. What happens next is… well… lots of stuff.
Direct (via Borg storage) from New York’s off-off Broadway P.I.T theatre, Keanu Reeves Saves The Universe boldly goes where it’s never been before – New Zealand.
