Dust off your freakum dress and get your BFF along for an evening of laughs, tears and trills.
“There’s a rich vein of compassion for Tasha and her fandom, celebrating the million little things in everyone’s past that follow us into the present".
Adam Goodall - Pantograph Punch
Tasha’s from the Hutt, but this Kiwi chick is making it big in the city as an independent woman. Join Tasha as she overcomes personal struggle with help and advice of best friend... Beyoncé.
A hilarious and heart-warming story of struggle, grind and being a boss. The audience find Tasha at her lowest, and learn of a girl who has never stop being herself. Her fandom borderlines obsession as Tasha’s needs to live every moment of her life with the fierceness of Queen Bey. Can she claim her throne and find her Jay-Z?
Tasha returns for her Welly black box debut following shows in Auckland and the beautiful Masterton. Created by Rose Kirkup (Everybody Cool Lives Here), this Fringe award-winning show is for everyone whose spirit animal is Beyoncé.
Winner of the NZ Pacific Studio Residency Award, 2016 NZ Fringe Awards.
