Join in the fun and experience the joy of immersive theater, express yourself in costume, sip themed cocktails and dance the night away to a live performance by Wellington Sea Shanty Society!

While the Light Lasts is part immersive theatre, part party game. You and your fellow guests will each be given a special role to play and have your own secret motivations for attending (fancy dress is highly encouraged). Themed cocktails will be on offer, along with a cash bar and h'ordeuvres.

*Please note that the bar will be EFTPOS-only.



Event FAQs

You will receive an email within 5 business days of your booking, which will include your character description. If you've booked multiple tickets, you'll receive descriptions for each ticket-holder. 

If you purchase more than one ticket, you will receive character descriptions in accordance with the total number of tickets booked. For instance, if you book three tickets, you'll receive three character descriptions - it's then up to you and your group to decide who takes what character. We will do our best to keep groups together in the same team on the night, but this may not always be possible and there is a small chance that your group will be split into different teams. If you have friends or whānau who have booked separately and you would like to be in the same group, please email us with both of your names and email addresses.

You are encouraged to come dressed up as your character, but the level of time and effort you put in is entirely up to you! The main thing is that you arrive ready for a great time.

Special offer: First Scene are generously giving our guests a 10% discount voucher, which you will receive with alongside your role information.
