Five Words Or Less

Presented by Oh That Theatre Company

Two writers at a greeting card company sick of working in the ‘birthday department’ compete to design the one card that tops sales every year without fail - the company fathers day card.

A Musical comedy about work friendships, office romances, and not knowing how to talk to your dad.

This show is set to be the next big thing for greeting card company musicals. Another show from award winning Oh That Theatre Company. Written by Lizzy Burton-Wood (Knights of the Table, The Ghost Show) and co-produced with Viki Moananu (Icky, Puka), this show has a wealth of emerging voices bringing it to life. Oh That Theatre Company was nominated for 2022’s Parkin Development award for NZ Fringe and has gone on to snag an award for their work on Icky for NZ Fringe earlier this year!

Don't miss out on this comedy musical about Father's day: the birthday of the dad!

Five Words or Less is endearing. It is a show that from only a minute into the first song, you want to see can feel the heart that has gone into creating this.
