The Basement's 5th Birthday

1 February 2014 at 6pm till late
Ticket Prices: Free entry

We're turning 5 and you're all invited! All 16 of the shows from our 2014 Summer Season will be there with birthday party activities, games and performances inspired their shows. We’ve got puppets, face painting, scavenger hunts, story swapping, a craft corner and even car rides with actors (don’t forget to make it click!) - it’s going to be total kindergarten madness!

We'll be reminiscing about the beginning of The Basement while we give away drinks and then dance till the sun comes up. Hope you can come. If not, we'll save you some cake.


6.30pm - DJ Junior 7.30pm - Coco Davis Band

6-9pm - Allllll of the games and activities

9pm - Comedy Canapes - a tasting sensation of comedy at The Basement this season featuring - Jeremy Elwood, Ryan Richards, the SNORT crew, and Hamish Parkinson & Eli Matthewson.

The infamous Mt Fruji will be making a comeback at the bar for one night only (for the un-initiated that’s an entire Fruju shoved in a glass of vodka.. yes, we know)

Our budget could only get us the mildly unsuccessful magician Chris Parker, who will also officiate over some serious games of… Pass the parcel, donuts-on-a-string, ankle balloon pop, peg, and the chocolate eating game. Win these and you could walk away with…

THE SUMMER SEASON PRIZE PACK - Tickets to 10 summer season shows, a $50 bar tab AND a 6 pack of Frujus.

Oh and YES, there will be a bouncy castle - we just have to figure out where to put it..
