Tomato Saucy - a sweet as variety show!
Prepare yourselves for a night of hard case comedy as Cassette Nine and Va-Va-Voom Productions bring you a night of kiwi-inspired entertainment with their new show ‘Tomato Saucy!’. Wrapped up in a tasty bundle (just like the iconic kiwi takeaway, the humble fish n’ chips) we’ll be bringing burlesque, poetry, rap, drag, acting and sketch comedy to the Cassette Nine stage. Topped with lashings of finger-lickin’ good sauce (oops, comedy!) we’ll have something for everyone’s taste buds. Chur!
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.
Nat of Va-Va-Voom Productions was brought on board the Glory Day's Events team to help co-produce and manage MOTAT Prohibition. Here's a peek as to some of the aspects Nat was in charge of.
fabulously flirty - a valentine's special
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.
CULT HORROR HALLOWEEN
Be afraid, be very afraid… from the psychos who brought you the sold out Rocky Horror Halloween in 2015, as well as sell out burlesque shows such as Classique/Erotique and Tomfoolery, we invite you to a hauntingly good night of entertainment as Va-Va-Voom Productions takes over Cassette Nine and transforms it into your cult horror fantasy nightmare. Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep, and don’t look under the bed.
Watch the creatures of the night as a selection of New Zealand’s hauntingly thrilling entertainers perform their own adaptations of your favourite cult horror movies. Expect the unexpected as burlesque, circus, fire and dance acts, as well as thrilling DJ’s, take over Cassette Nine and send you into a hypnotic trance. Come play with us, forever and ever and ever.

Bambina Burlesque Graduate Showcase 29/07/17
Pop on your glad-rags on and prepare to get hot under the collar as our fabulous graduates from Bambina Burlesque Academy NZ in Auckland, New Zealand bump n' grind their way to burlesque stardom!
Taught by Headmistress Lilly Loca, these vivacious ladies are ready to shimmy and shake what their momma gave them on-stage (some, for the very first time!). Come and support the growing burlesque scene in New Zealand, while being thoroughly entertained, wined and dined.
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?
