A promiscuous archangel, a wise man with multiple personality disorder, a psychotic King, a desperate donkey, a smitten shepherd, one dodgy innkeeper, and some knocked-up virgin and her baffled fella. Put them all together on one bill and you’ve got eight versions of the greatest story ever told, by those who were there, in monologue ... up close and personal.
This is no silent night – It’s Christ Almighty!
Direct from sell-out seasons in Auckland and Wellington, a rotating cast of twenty-four actors from television, film, cabaret, theatre and comedy give their all over eight outrageous nights. You will have no idea who will be performing which role on any given night, but strap yourself in … it’s going to be a wild ride!
Starring Anna Achia, Dougie Baldwin, Alan Brough, Byron Coll, Danielle Cormack, Zoe Cramond Nicole de Silva, Julia Grace, Calen MacKenzie, Robbie Magasiva, Natalie Medlock, Rhys Morgan, Morgana O’Reilly, Geraldine Quinn, Cameron Rhodes, Thomas Sainsbury, Sara Wiseman AND MORE!

“The Nativity story is transformed into a kind of X-rated version of The Life of Brian … the frivolity is peppered with some ironic reflections on religious experience.” – NZ Herald
Wickedly clever”- Capitol Times
“Rejoice. For unto us a show is reborn. Go, and go often.” – Theatreview
DOORS WILL OPEN ONE HOUR PRIOR TO ADVERTISED START TIME
