Join the intrepid crew of Space Patrol 5: The Next Generation on a voyage of exploration and discovery to the furthest reaches of the galaxy… and beyond! Originally created and performed by Christchurch’s Court Jesters, this NZIF ensemble cast will encounter alien civilisations and mysterious scientific phenomena, while dealing with the interpersonal tensions that naturally crop up between workmates who also live together. Space battles! Alien treachery! Poor decisions! Science! Engineering! SPACE PATROL 5!
(Please come early: we need help building the spaceship.)
Led by original cast members Matt Powell and Brendon Bennetts, Space Patrol 5: The Next Generation follows on from Space Patrol 5, performed at BATS Theatre (Out of Site) in 2014, where it was one of the first shows to sell out. It also enjoyed success at Court Theatre during the Court Jesters’ monthly seasons. The Court Jesters are a Christchurch based improv group that have been performing their signature show Scared Scriptless since 1990.
