WIT's A Christmas Cracker

From an improvised pantomime to misbehaving puppets; from heartwarming fundraising to the end of civilisation itself! This December, WIT presents 'A Christmas Cracker' - two weeks of improvised theatre that promises comedy, charitable Christmas cheer, pantomime horses and more surprises than a leaked Ministry document.

From the people that brought you The Last Saloon, The Wishing Tree and The Young and the WITless VI, and featuring performances from both new members and old hats, this is a season not to be missed. Season passes and individual performance tickets available.

A Christmas Cracker is presented by Wellington Improvisation Troupe (WIT), Wellington’s not-for-profit, community-based improvisational theatre group. WIT performs and teaches the skills of improvisational theatre at community venues around the Wellington region.
