He knows you've been naughty... He’s made his list and checked it twice, but this year... no one’s been nice.

In the little town of Auckland, naughtiness has taken over and Santa’s ready to take the law into his own hands.

Which list are you on? Did you buy caged eggs? Park in a disabled parking spot? Record a private conversation with an employee without their knowledge or consent?

Then you better watch out. Because Santa Claus is coming to The Basement, and it’s either good tidings, or a total Chrismassacre.

A Slightly Isolated Dog (Don Juan, Jekyll and Hyde) bring their raucous, sexy signature style to The Basement’s annual chaotic Christmas celebration.

Starring a killer core cast of Hayley Sproull, Jack Buchanan, Andrew Paterson and Susie Berry, as well as a celebrity guest each night including Urzila Carlson, Antonia Prebble, Chlöe Swarbrick, Miriama Kamo, Jesse Griffin and more to be announced.

Irreverent and subversive, The Basement Christmas Show has evolved from a low-key fundraiser to one of Auckland’s must-do Christmas offerings, described in 2016 by the New Zealand Herald as “as much of an Auckland holiday season staple as Franklin Rd Lights and the Santa Parade”.

As the theatre’s only fundraiser, all profits from our Christmas show go into our development programmes for artists, so audience members get the warm Christmas fuzzies, as well as a stonking great night out!
