Attack of the Killer Puppets!

Halllooooweeeeen! Puppets. B-Movie inspired storylines. Improvisation! What could possibly go wrong?

The Wellington Improv Troupe (WIT) is delighted to bring you a ridiculous Halloween monster mashup of our regular homage to the 1950s B-Movie genre Attack of the Killer-B Movie and 2018 Fringe Fest felt-fest, The Late Night Puppets.

Entirely suitable for adults and robust older children who like hokey-spooky stuff. Our puppets may misbehave and get a bit rude or accidentally sweary (but not in a mean way) and there’ll also likely be dramatic stage lighting and depths-of-the-crypt style music. Tinfoil hat making material will be provided for added audience safety.

Tickets will be available from Eventfinda or as door sales, but by golly heck darn, we love it when people book tickets in advance. And then you know you won’t miss out if sales go crazy.

Finally, yes, you may bring your puppet, and puppets do not need to purchase a separate ticket to that held by their accompanying human, unless they are particularly large.

Where: The Scruffy Bunny Improv Theatre,  100 Courtenay Pl, Te Aro, Wellington
When: 7pm, Wednesday 31st October
Tickets: $10 doorsales or Buy Now on Eventfinda
