When it comes to theatre, what you see shouldn't always be what you get. 

On the 22nd and 23rd of February only award winning events company Celery Productions (producers of Art in the Dark & The Triumphants) presents its inaugural immersive storytelling extravaganza. 

Celery Productions and The Basement are joining their juggernaut creative forces to get audiences out of their seats and into the streets. 

With Celery Stories, the concept of seeing a play will never be the same again. The audience will be presented with a theatrical world where they will become collaborators rather than spectators. 

On a Journey through Auckland's backyard - from St Kevin's Arcade, through Myers Park and then into The Basement - the stage could be a park bench, the stranger standing next to you could have the leading role and survival packs will be provided, of course. Use them wisely. 

Loosely based on a fairy tale that will become clear as the journey progresses Celery will use every resource under their belt. Stand by to witness shadow puppets, projections, special effects and performances like no other. 

Celery Stories. Unexpected, expected.
