press play 2018

Press Play is the new kid on the burlesque block. Combining theatrical improvisation and burlesque, this competition will guarantee competitors and audience members alike a night of suspense, drama, excitement and hilarity. Our eight contestants, all from around New Zealand, will choose a musical genre, be given a random song, bestowed an “ask for” from the audience and then will have to shimmy, shake and improvise for their lives. The two highest scoring performers at the end of the night will then compete against each other in a battle royale of off-the-cuff burlesque to win the title of Press Play Champion 2018.

Putting the va-va-VOOM into Valentines, Cassette Nine and Va-Va-Voom Productions, the purveyors of sell out burlesque variety shows since 2015, are back with a ba-da-BOOM with their first show of 2018. Cupid’s arrow is pointed straight for Cassette Nine as our beautiful bouquet of award winning burlesque beauties razzle, dazzle and show all you love birds (and singletons alike) a fun and titillating night of burlesque entertainment.

Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep, and don’t look under the bed.

TOMFOOLERY 31/03/17

Inspired by the likes of British comedy greats such as Monty Python and The Benny Hill Show, we've rallied up some of NZ's best vaudeville and burlesque talent, who will keep you entertained with funny talk, burlesque striptease, mime, sing songs and more fun than you can poke a stick at. Rather appropriate considering it's the day before April Fools, isn't it?
