Bats: terror in the fridge

Press Release – Bats Theatre
Our first show of the year has opened and the theatre seems to be coping well with the epic food fight that occurs each night. It’s a crazy, chaotic slice of madcap madness that seems to be delighting and offending audiences in equal measure. More details about No Taste Forever are below.

Our new Business Manager, Jim Rush, has started so feel free to drop in and say hello. He’s a Scorpio cusp who moonlights as a music promoter, so hopefully he’ll be directing some great bands in the direction of the Pit Bar over the coming months.

We are also gearing up for the 2011 Fringe Festival – it’s just over four weeks until the theatrical madness is unleashed on Wellington, so keep an eye out for the Fringe Programme which will be released any day now. Details on Fringe shows at BATS will be hitting our website this week, so make sure you check it out.

No Taste Forever
by Paul Rothwell
NOW PLAYING until January 29th @ 7.30pm
$20 / $14 / Groups 8+ $14

“…if you’re into picking morsels from a welter of goodies to re-energise your theatrical taste-buds, give it a go.” – (John Smythe, Theatreview)

The human race is under attack from an insidious force. Nutritionist Malcolm Sweet realises something is wrong when his morbidly obese patients start dropping like flies. When a little girl is crushed beneath the wheels of his SUV, crying for her ice cream, Malcolm knows for certain that something terrifying has a hold over the human race and he’s determined to find out what it is. What he discovers will shock you to the pit of your stomach.

Tremble in fear as the human race battles a force of utter evil intent on consuming us all! No one can save you from the terror that hides inside your own fridge!


Coming Right Up…

The Love of Your Life
by Kate McGIll and Emma Draper
February 1st – 5th @ 8pm (5 nights only!)

Described as a cross between Summer Heights High and Lost, The Love of Your Life is a Doco-Fable, a modern NZ fairytale about an island that thrives on making the best of a situation. It is not necessarily about the lady or fella who holds your hand at the flicks. But it could be too.


and in The Pit Bar…

We’re open 5:30pm – late, so come in and enjoy our range of boutique beer and wine served to you by Wellington’s best bar staff in one of Wellington’s best little bars. A great place to either start or finish your night, with nightly drink specials and tonnes of good times.

Watch this space for details of some sweet gigs coming up at the Pit over the summer months!

Win cool stuff!
The Love of Your Life is not your usual love story, and we have a double pass to give away for their upcoming opening night. To be in to win simply tell me the name of your celebrity crush. My celebrity crushes are too numerous to mention…

We had an overwhelming response to last weeks competition for No Taste Forever tickets, and my mouth was watering at all the food suggestions that flooded my inbox. The lucky winners (who both receive a double pass) are Noa Malaulau and Beth Brash. Congrats! See you at the theatre!


Mental Health Break

Do you like food? Do you like looking at food? Yum.

Useful uses for potentially useless stationary.

You will never look at a piano accordion the same way again.

I am watching you…
