Check Out ZM’s Top Picks Below!

● Just A Taste - Eye & Ear Bits/Music/Theatre/Cabaret - A musical theatre revue featuring your favourite characters from current popular Broadway musicals. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll leave the theatre humming a sweet tune. If you don't leave the show in a good mood, see it again!!

● Cupid's Guide to Modern Romance - Live Parts/Comedy/Improv - Come join us for an improvised, romantic fling that revels in the true awkwardness of dating. Each night, our cast of improvisers will create a different pair of unlikely lovers, send them on a date, and see if we can finally figure out how this love thing works.

● Suit and Ties - Naughty Bits/Comedy - Comedian Li'i Alaimoana has stayed away from two things since performing on stage: Wearing a suit, and his ties to the security industry through his 'Bouncer' days. Laughs a plenty as he merges both in an hour of stand up comedy.

● Travails with my Ex - Live Parts/Comedy/Storytelling/LGBTQIA+ - Have you ever decided what you need to do after a break-up is travel to Thailand to find yourself...*with* your ex? Combination of heat stroke, sleep deprivation and drug sniffer dogs can put any friendship to the test. Travails with my Ex – Part Deux is a comedy-horror-story-telling-filled fiesta, about where good intentions can take you.

● Bald Man Sings Rihanna - International/Comedy - Heard a bald man sing Rihanna? Fresh from sold out runs in Edinburgh & seen at the biggest comedy clubs across the world, including Caroline's on Broadway – Scotsman Sansome returns for one night only taking an irreverent look at music and popular culture. 'hour of pure entertainment and hilarity' ★★★★★ (Bunbury Magazine)
