A new musical soap opera 

We're ordinary people living ordinary lives  

We're lying to our husbands and we're cheating on wives  

Since we've only got one life to live, in joy or tragedy  

Won't you spend these bold and restless days with me!  

ALIEN BABIES ARE TOTALLY NORMAL

From the Writer of SEDUCTOBOT and Co-Creator of SONG SALE, WINNER of Best Music at the DUNEDIN FRINGE FESTIVAL 2012, comes a brand new musical soap opera, DAYS OF THE BOLD AND THE RESTLESS!

Coma patients! Dastardly experiments! Extraterrestrials! Illicit affairs! Murder and betrayal!

Death and roller skates! Every weeknight of the Fringe, join us for a brand new episode of the most surreal musical soap opera to hit the stage. For 15 nights, you can tune in to your favourite soap with a twist.

ALL IS NOT SUNNY IN SUNNY VALLEY...

Spanning fifteen individual episodes, DAYS OF THE BOLD AND THE RESTLESS will run the duration of the 2013 FRINGE FESTIVAL. A cast of over 25 performers bring to life an array of colourful characters, including a seductive surgeon with a penchant for playing with brains, a charming investigative journalist who uncovers a shocking secret about his closest friend, a bartender with a crippling jaywalking addiction and a wedding caterer hopelessly in love with an indecisive bride-to-be.

Our talented pianist Sam (play it again!) accompanies the drama with over 30 ORIGINAL SONGS, an impressive feat that no human should ever attempt.

SO MANY STORIES ARE IN STORE...

The cast and crew of DAYS OF THE BOLD AND THE RESTLESS bring a wealth of experience and talent in live performance, film production/performance, production management and prop/costume construction. Members of our team have worked and performed with SPEAKEASY THEATRE, INDUSTRIAL BURLESQUE COLLECTIVE, PORIRUA LITTLE THEATRE, ADVENTURE WELLINGTON, WHITIREA PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE and QUITE SENSIBLE THEATRE. Also on board are members of ZEMI COSTUMING AND DESIGN, KANONBROSTV PRODUCTIONS, WELLINGTON MAKER SPACE and HYDRA ENTERTAINMENT.

Starting Monday February 18, a brand new episode premieres every weeknight at 6.30pm at Underworld (152 Vivian St), culminating in a thrilling finale Friday March 8.
