Waste Not Want Not : Bethany's Guide to the Thrift Life
Bethany is the Queen of Resourcefulness. In her quirky (and musical!) storytelling solo show, Bethany opens up about her tips, tricks and the frightful lengths she's gone to save food, money... well anything and everything really. It’s a hot handy hack guide for all, a celebration of weird uniqueness, and a microscope into hoarding.

After an award-nominated debut at NZ Fringe, followed by Dunedin Fringe and Christchurch’s Little Andromeda, we are so excited to at last bring Thrift Life to Nelson, where the story all began…
