Dining out with World Icons

Invite your favourite historical figure, artist or celebrity for dinner!

March 23, 2020 / developer / 0 comments

Dine Out Event Series builds a bridge between the famous people and culture of the country they represent.

How is it possible? Thanks to the hard work of our magicians, planners and storytellers.

First of all, we re-create special atmosphere of the chosen time period.  We start with designing the gourmet food and/or cocktail menu that features traditional meals of the specific country. Or we relocate to one of Auckland’s greatest restaurants that has not only features traditional cuisine of the chosen character but also adds the special vibe to our experience. Then we invite the professional actor who impersonates, lives and breathes the life of a chosen character who re-enacts, shares stories and comes up with interesting tailored activities to entertain the group – think of the social drawing, learning how to make celebrity’s cocktail, do a catwalk or design a soup label for Wattie’s. The audience i welcome to ask any questions and even have a debate with the chosen character. The more engagement the better.

We also invite the musical band who adds another layer of entertainment into our diverse programme.

Inspired  the famous question “Who would you invite for dinner – dead or alive?” these event series invites you to dine out with one of the artist’s world icons and explore the traditional cuisine alongside. Time travel with an exclusive multi-sensory immersive entertainment by choosing a time period or a public figure that you’ve been always interested in. The personalised experience can last up to 3 hours and can include multiple characters. 

Dine Out Event Series is an intimate gathering of people equally interested in arts & culture, food and new experiences. Each event has its own “flavour” and immersive atmosphere as the actor, dress up as the character, will re-enact the chosen celebrity and entertain guests by sharing stories, anecdotes of their time and reflecting on what life has become these days. Each world icon (actor) has its own storytelling routine as well as a list of activities that everyone is doing in the group.

Feel free to choose from the world icons list below or inquire about the character you would like to see for your event, show or festival. We are working along with famous actors across New Zealand, so we are sure that we will be able to bring any world icon back to life. Please email us – papayastories@gmail.com to discuss it further.
