What's going on in Beth's Basement
While her character Brooke has had a very eventful time recently, off-screen Beth Allen is also a very busy woman.
As well as working full time on Shortland Street, she's taken on the huge job of Festival Director and launched Basement Fest 2011 with co-director Charlie McDermott and alongside producer Sam Snedden.
You may have seen Beth on Good Morning talking about the festival here .
From September 28th - October 22nd, Basement Fest 2011 presents a fabulous line up of theatre, comedy, dance, art, spoken word and music at The Basement theatre in Auckland.
Beth and her co-director Charlie wanted to provide an exciting theatre experience for those who wanted some alternative entertainment during Rugby World Cup.
From theatrical thrillers to world renowned street art, burlesque to DJs, true stories to good-old-fashioned stand-up, Basement Fest 2011 has got something for everyone.
Shows include Yours Truly, a chilling play about Jack the Ripper from Albert Belz, comedian Jamie Bowen's show Munfred Bernstein's Cabinet of Wonder, a performance from London-based DJ Mooqee and much much more.
Basement Fest 2011 runs from 28th September - 22nd October at The Basement Theatre, Lower Greys Ave, Auckland City
