From the creators of 2016 hit Mr and Mrs Alexander

Sideshows and Psychics…



Spray and Wipe are two cleaners who have been hired for their most exciting job ever, cleaning a magician’s house! But when they accidentally let the magic out of its box, everything is turned topsy-turvy…

Now, the audience must help Spray and Wipe think of a plan to get the magic back in the box before the magician comes home, as her house gets messier and messier! The best of circus, slapstick and magic combine in this very special adventure for primary school aged children and their families.

Fantastical fun, with waterproof ponchos provided for those in the front row.

From the creators of 2016 hit Mr and Mrs Alexander:

Sideshows and Psychics

Ladies and gentlemen, step right up as Rollicking Entertainment turns up the heat to celebrate seven of the most notorious stunts in carny folklore. A nail-biting and naughty experience brings you the freakiest side of circus, magic and sideshow. Chainsaw juggling, walking on broken glass and other famous feats are performed along with the stories of how they came to be.

Sourcing inspiration from some of the biggest names in the annals of magic and mystery such as Harry Houdini, Ripley's Believe It or Not and The Prestige...

(Plus let’s be honest, a dollop of Jackass), come laugh, gasp and cheer- the carnival is in town!

Exciting, terrifying and genuinely funny, join the dastardly duo of real life husband and wife Lizzie Tollemache and David Ladderman for what could be the last hour of their lives…

Justin "Rusty" White

The Thinking Persons Idiot!!! Comedy Show

8pm, 8th December, Old Lodge Theatre



He hates it when people bring it up, but Justin "Rusty" White is a critically acclaimed, multi award winning comedian. Who wouldn't be embarrassed by descriptions of his "virtually uninterrupted hour of laughter" show I Learnt Something Once like "a gem of a show", or the somewhat over the top "finely polished masterwork" (Theatreview). How would you like being described as "can only be described as hilarious" (ArtMurmurs Wgtn). How would you recover from being "undoubtedly the highlight of the night" (Caclin magazine) then going on to win Best Comedian (2016 & 2017 Chch Comedy Awards)? All right, we get it! Jeez. Rusty wishes people would stop going on about it…

"I don't want to labour the point, but this is a funny, funny, funny, funny, funny show" - Theatreview

December 2018 sees Auckland born, Nashville based Tattletale Saints return home, performing 13 intimate acoustic duo concerts around the country in support of the release of two new singles.

This time in Music City USA has brought a new depth of artistry and polish to their performances and songwriting.
