From the producers of Sweeney Todd and The Purple People Eater Pop Concert (CubaDupa), WITCH Music Theatre presents their dazzling new cabaret, coming to Te Auaha: NZ Institute of Creativity this December.


“Hollywood isn't a place ... it’s an idea”


Reimagining the Golden Age of the Silver Screen.

ROXY: A New Hollywood Cabaret invites audiences to step inside the movie studio this summer to experience an immersive, contemporary, and theatrical new take on some of Hollywood's most memorable musical moments, prolific people, and the unforgettable tales of Tinseltown. A rip-roaring revue, fuelled by an exhilarating fusion of musical theatre, drag, dance and circus! 


Heartfelt and hilarious, ROXY is scored with a sensational setlist of classic movie-musical hits, cinematic showstoppers and sumptuous songs that spotlight the fantasy of filmmaking. A technicolour whirl of electrifying entertainment, showcasing some of Wellington’s brightest stars. 

From the transformative allure of the cabaret club stage to the effervescent costumes and choreography. You won’t want to miss ROXY, the bombshell musical experience of the holiday season.
