Since 1987 Theatresports, in New Zealand and offshore, has presented over 5,000 corporate events to over a quarter of a million people. Now they’ve created new ways of taking your conference, event, or dinner by storm to make it a sparkling comic affair.
The Kiwiana Show
The good old-fashioned fun of the A & P show is recreated, indoors or out. Race that wheelbarrow, round up those rascally sheep or join in the gumboot tossing competition.
Welcome to the Pacific
Experience the Pacific. There’ll be exotic Pacific dancers and drummers, pig on a spit and our comic Kiwi hosts to ensure your evening runs smoothly with plenty of laughs. A great way to thank your valued clients or overseas visitors.
Fairways to Heaven
Golf is the perfect blend of business and pleasure. It’s an increasingly popular way to thank staff and clients. Our “golf personalities” will help with hosting duties, take the frustration out of delays and even hold an awards ceremony at the 19th hole. They make sure that golf and business are always the focus.
Golf - The World Challenge
An indoor challenge for your dinner event. Your guests will putt for points, get advice from expert caddies and meet “world famous golfers”. If you love golf but can’t get to the course, we’ll bring the course to you.
Whose Show is it Anyway?
A non-stop comedy show where the audience offers suggestions as the comics are challenged to sing, rhyme and create skits at the drop of a hat.
The Love Boat
Unsinkable fun as our dynamic crew guides you through the perils of love and shipboard drills, on land or water.
In this interactive show participants compete in madcap events for the glory of their mythical countries and for medals. Can be adapted to a nautical theme, indoors and out.
The Millennium Power Breakfast
Welcome the Millennium with a frank discussion of love and its value in the workplace. When was the last time you told the receptionist and the CEO you loved them? Let our inspirational seminar leaders help you “let the love out”.
At an Amerika’s Kup event you can have a number of things happen. The two formats discussed below are only a starting point. They are ideas for a theme which can be personalised.
Amerika’s Kup - The Challenge
Suitable for groups of 150 and under. The audience becomes the challengers - Team Telecom, Team Fletcher Challenge, for example. Or they can be divisions of a company such as Team Accounts, Team Sales etc. Leading the session will be Sir Peter Fake and his crew. They tell the guests that they are being recruited to train to take out the Kup. A series of events and games are organised by the Director of the event. Guests competing with each other in mini events like a lifejacket race - a sporting quiz etc have fun and may win silly prizes. The Director will devise these specifically so they pertain to the client. There may be a touching award ceremony to conclude the evening. This is suitable as a dinner, lunch or conference show.
Amerika’s Kup - Ocean Antics
This time Sir Peter Fake and his merry crew mingle with guests, testing their resilience to listen to Peter Montgomery for hours on end, how well they drink champagne and who comes up with the best insults to hurl at Denis Connor. Sea shanties may be sung and odes to the Kup devised. Also includes a stage show and could have some competitions. Options are open. This is a meal show - breakfast, lunch or dinner.
