underscore _ WITCH Music Theatre _ Roc+

“A RICH SMORGASBORD OF MUSICAL THEATRE PERFORMED BY SUCH A DIVERSE RANGE OF FABULOUS PERFORMERS TO CELEBRATE OUR THEATRICAL ARTS COMMUNITY”

17 October, 2020

Te Auaha, Tapere Nui, 65 Dixon Street Wellington.

Packed with talent, production and power, underscore _ is an evening of music theatre you’ll never forget!

20+ performers, a live band, and the hottest scores from Broadway and the West End.


Featuring contemporary songs from shows such as Waitress, SIX, Hamilton and Everybody's Talking About Jamie, this setlist premieres the latest show-tunes and showcases reimagined cult favourites from classics such as Miss Saigon, Chess and Assassins.

underscore _ began as a WITCH workshop space for our artists emerging from lockdown, but since August it has since grown into a fully fledged fundraiser concert and full-throttle evening of Wellington music theatre excellence. 

With mind-blowing vocals, beautiful arrangements and breathtaking storytelling, underscore _ is more than a concert, it’s a celebration of Wellington music theatre excellence.
