The Basement Annual Christmas Show - Hauraki Horror

4 - 20 December

Grab a cocktail, slop on ya SPF50, slap on ya boat shoes and take a Christmas Cruise with the A-list of Auckland society…

It’s the party of the year! But when the yacht’s billionaire skipper is harpooned by an anonymous assailant, things quickly turn from a who’s who to a whodunit. With a boat full of fame-hungry guests, and red herrings around every corner, it’s all starting to smell rather fishy - and we're not talking about the seafood buffet. How far will Sally go for a return season of The Ridges? Is there more to Kiri Te Kanawa’s feud with Hayley Westenra? Are cracks beginning to show in Jason Gunn and Thingee’s “relationship”?

Help our hapless heroes, Chris and Tom as they try to unravel the biggest New Zealand scandal since the death of Dr Sarah Potts.

Starring Chris Parker and Tom Sainsbury and a huge revolving cast of stars from the stage and screen (and our hearts).
