Experience an evening of wonder and delight, a variety show like no other! Imagine The Muppet Show meets The Royal Variety Performance, but fresher, weirder, more risqué and heaps more Kiwi. The Menagerie, an acclaimed Wellington institution, is thrilled to bring their unique blend of high quality, talented specialty acts back to the Opera House for the third time.
Hosted by Ben Hurley, sixteen completely different acts from some of New Zealand’s most amazing entertainers, The Menagerie provides a night out which is strange, compelling and totally unforgettable. Expect to see mind-reading, quick change, ass-tassel-twirlling-burlesque, music, poetry, sideshow, dance, circus, and many more trouser fillingly gorgeous acts.
