Time Wed 7 Mar 2018, 7:30pm - 9:30pm

A highlight of the Fringe calendar, the Polson Higgs Opening Night Showcase will kick off the 2018 Festival with a bang. Launching the Festival on the 7th of March, the Showcase will feature some of the best of the fest, with dance, comedy, theatre, and music from international stars and local talent. You’ll be guided through this stellar line-up by our fabulous MC’s: Comedian and television personality Te Radar (most recently seen on the trail of the nefarious, eccentric, and pioneering characters of Aotearoa’s history in Te Radar's Chequered Past), and recently retired parliamentarian (and ‘neo-retrovist from way back’) Metiria Turei. With entertainment from some of the country’s most exciting performers, and music from house band Tahu and the Takah─ôs, featuring dazzling diva Tahu Mckenzie, this is a night not to miss. Tickets will sell fast - so join us at the Town Hall for a cracking opening ceremony! How to book your tickets: Door sales – available 1 hour prior at the venue. Hold on to your ticket!
