The Greatest Show

  • The Random Stage at BATS Theatre 1 Kent Terrace Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

This is the GREATest show! Inspired by the film, this musical will pull back the curtains of the Big Top and introduce you to the people who live in that world. Song and dance, action and emotion, and hopefully a compelling narrative (a clear improvement on the source material).

Combining 30 years of performance and teaching experience, directors Wiremu Tuhiwai and Amanda Buckley met at NZIF 2017. Their nerdy love of musicals and their mutual desire to make The Greatest Showman a better film has led them to this point. Join them!

Amanda Buckley (Melbourne) has been performing for nearly 20 years for theatre, corporate and festival audiences both in Australia and overseas; including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe Festivals and the UCB Del Close Marathon (NY).

Wiremu Tuhiwai (Wellington) has learned and lived a lot of improvisation over his past decade here in the capital. He has also performed with other local musical and theatre companies as he loves the stage too much to not try new things but his best mate is improv and hopes to continue to grow and develop his long friendship with the Wellington and international improvisation world.
