Currently on a short break from filming Shortland Street, Beth Allen
(Dr. Brooke Freeman) appeared on TVNZ’s Good Morning
show on 20th Sptember to promote Basement Fest 2011
, a festival of art, comedy and performance happening at the Basement Theatre
(which is co-managed by Beth) in Auckland during the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
The timing of the event is great as visitors for the Rugby tournament who are looking to sample cultural treats from NZ will be getting quality local entertainment. Aswell as being a treat for those who are bored of the Rugby already and looking for an escape!
In the interview Beth also talks about her and Charlie’s new arrival, a four legged friend, Ned the Pinscher/Poodle :) Check out the interview below or on TVNZ…
A full programme of events can be found on the Basement website. With thanks to Lotus for the info and BethAllen.Webs for uploading the vid on YouTube :)
