THE OTHER SIDE OF CHRISTMAS
A Very Naughty Christmas is a riotous romp that lives up to its name and more as it tears through the sanctity of Christmas, poking fun at everyone along the way.
Understudy Productions, in collaboration with Dan Venz and Matthew Semple, have created a show where the traditional context of Christmas carols is turned on its head while still keeping a healthy dose of yuletide spirit.
All your favourite Christmas songs are here like you’ve never seen them before. The 10 talented and versatile cast members of A Very Naughty Christmas present a stripping Santa, a male ‘Mean Girls’ quartet, Jingle Balls and just try and keep the lesbians out of Santa’s sleigh! The live band on stage adds to the energy and atmosphere of the show.
It’s Rocky Horror meets Carols by Candlelight — a Christmas show where diversity is celebrated and fun is the bottom line. This is a perfect evening to enjoy with afew friends and a few beverages.
A Very Naughty Christmas is showing at the Brisbane Powerhouse until the 16th of December, but get in quick; if opening night numbers were anything to go by this show will sell out. Please note there is an age recommendation of 18+ as it contains adult themes.
