Treat your staff to a night of hilarity at The Basement!

Our annual Christmas show is a hilarious and hassle-free alternative to the traditional company Christmas party. If you want to surprise your awesome and hard-working staff with something different this year – something a bit more, say, murdery – leave it to us at The Basement to de-hassle your holiday season and treat ‘em to something unique. “This is one guilt-free, stress-free seasonal tradition well worth fitting in to this busy time of year.” Frances Morton, Metro Magazine, December 2013

How does it work?

Our annual Christmas show is one of the most hotly anticipated events of the season. Every year a rotating cast of approximately 50 of New Zealand’s best comedians and stars of stage and screen perform a hilarious, sometimes raucous, and always engaging show that is sure to become your newest holiday tradition. This year the show is a Hauraki Horror - one hull of a murder mystery! (Sorry, we had to…). We’re reserving five nights of the month-long run for corporate bookings, so you and your co-workers can attend as a group for a special discount. It’s a great and hassle-free alternative to the normal (and let’s face it, dull) office Christmas party. In addition to the discounted group rates, we’ve got special group show times scheduled so that you and your group have option to host a function before or after. You can tailor a party package to suit your team and budget. Ask us about the special extras exclusively available for groups, such as the option to meet the cast or customise the show. You can add a line or two to be incorporated into the show’s dialogue, or even have member of your team cameo alongside some of New Zealand’s finest actors. This year, the line-up includes Amanda Billing, Siobahn Marshall, Michael Hurst, Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Oliver Driver, Nic Sampson, Jessie Griffen, Rhys Matthewson, Kate Elliot, Tom Sainsbury, Chris Parker, Guy Montgomery, Kimberley Crossman, Rose Matafeo, Barnie Duncan, Michelle Blundell, plus many more!
