A Drunkspeare Christmas

Wednesday 29th November-Friday 1st December 2023

The award-winning, (and slightly tipsy), kiwi troupe, The Barden Party is in the holiday spirits and are in no state to decide which of our 3 full-length Shakespearean musicals the cast should perform, so the decision is up to you! Will it be rockabilly 'Much Ado About Nothing', Australasian indie-folk 'Romeo & Juliet' or guilty pleasure pop music ‘A Midsummer Night's Dream'? You choose on the night which of the acclaimed, joyfully, silly and heartfelt works these mischievous actors will perform but if the actors need to consult a script for any of the shows, they must drink!

Come begin the holiday season with us and party The Barden Party way.

Secure your spot for these exclusive shows and find out the secret Nelson CBD location by emailing to pay by bank deposit (Suggested $35 per person). Bring a picnic, your bff, and sit amongst the fairy lights for some music, magic, silliness and a few surprises.

3 words: Music, Mischief, Magic.
(This show is a raucous, rocking, ridiculously hilarious take on Shakespeare like you've never seen.)
