PRANCER! DANCER! DONNER UND BLITZEN! MEOW MEOW’S BACK!

Get ready for imminent cat-astrophe. Everyone’s favourite Wandering Star returns to glory in the silly season, bursting onto the Merlyn Theatre stage with a sizzling hot band, a swag of satire, childhood dreams and maybe even a mythical donkey.

Meow Meow’s chaotic carousel lights up with wild anthems, originals and a lullaby or two. These aren’t your typical Christmas carols. A glorious antidote to Christmas pandemonium, hilarious and heart-wrenching, Apocalypse Meow: Crisis is Born gleefully eviscerates traditional rituals, and unearths unexpected magic in the mayhem.
