What’s On


Level 1: We’re back at capacity!

As we celebrate Level 1’s relative freedoms, we wish to continue to ensure your safety:

We have protocols in place to keep you safe, and limit potential spread if the virus is present in our community. There are a few things you need to be aware of, in order to still enjoy coming to the theatre in these strange and testing times:

  1. BOOK ONLINE EARLY. This eliminates a contact point, gives us a record for tracing purposes, and ensures we can let you know of any changes or postponements.
  2. TURN UP EARLY. To check in using the Covid Tracer App, be seated, and get bar service. We will continue to use EFTPOS ONLY – no cash!! This eliminates money handling for our staff.
  3. Please still be considerate of your community: practice good hygiene, and if you are unwell, please STAY AT HOME!
  4. As there is not the requirement for distanced seating, you may choose to still wear a mask if you wish.

Chip: Salty with a bit of sauce

Thursday 12 Sept & Fri 13 Sept
&:30pm doors open, 8pm start
TICKETS: http://www.trybooking.co.nz/FGF

After four SELL OUT shows in 2019, Harriet Moir is back to entertain the troops with her debut solo stand up show CHIP this November.

You know how we are all basically just like potatoes, all different shapes and sizes and varieties? And how some people are potato salads and they get taken to parties and BBQs and they live the high life but they’re a bit cold and some are all mashed and comforting when served with a good sausage? And some are chopped up and plunged into vats of hissing and bubbling oil but they come out extra delicious? Well CHIP is about that. Harriet just added some extra salt (to the wounds) and a wee bit of sauce. Buckle up mums, dads and millennials. Frank, funny and a little bit bogan, join Harriet as she overshares her way through the life of a 40 something year old cougar. I mean MILF.

Here’s what people are saying about CHIP –
“Laugh? I don’t think I’ve ever laughed that much” – Theatreview
“My partner & I laughed so much. Would not hesitate to see Harriet perform again. Absolute comedic gold! If you get the chance to watch her, engage with her or hire her – I highly recommend you do that! Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️” – Amy Scott
“Harriet is so relatable and blindingly accurate with her assessment of the human condition. Don’t take my word for it – check out her standup for yourself” – Audience member
“Absolutely loved your show Harriet, it was absolutely hilarious, I had tears rolling down my face from laughter.” Audience member
