Pio Terei and Stacey Morrison will be rolling into towns with a night of laughs and great prizes! Visiting Northland, Bay of Plenty and Waikato.

It's in the Bag crew are all getting ready to hit the road next week. Behind the scenes today Pio and Stacey have been polishing their lines and having final fittings to their evening attire.

The first show opens in Dargaville on Wednesday 7 April at Northern Wairoa War Memorial Town Hall on Hokianga Road. The 30 person crew then travels on to: Kawakawa
, Whangaroa
, Kaikohe
, Opotiki
, Kawerau
, Murupara, Rotorua
, Otorohanga
, Te Awamutu
, Raglan
 and Huntly
. The grand final will be filmed live at Maori Television later in the year.

This series the prizes are bigger and better with helicopter flights, power tools, TV's, overseas holidays, BBQ's, home decorating packages, whiteware, furniture, outdoor clothing, homeware, seafood, games and travel prizes up for grabs!

"We're the only genuine NZ show that actually gives away things and has a lot of laughs doing it!" chuckles Pio Terei.

"And if you can't make the show for the chance to compete on stage you can enter our online Web Bag comp and Stacey and I will play for you!" he adds.

Web Bag is open to anyone in New Zealand - simply visit the website and enter how much cash you would be prepared to take over the bag. Each show an entrant is drawn at random and Pio and Stacey play against each other on your behalf. Kia tupato! - If you get the bag you could walk away with a Holiday or a scrubbing brush!

"Last year we had amazing contestants, some real characters and fun was the name of the Game. I'm also proud that we can include te reo Maori in a way which includes everyone and is a celebration of what is unique to Aotearoa" Says Stacey Morrison

Each show contestants are chosen from the audience in a warm up game before shooting starts.

"Be ready for an evening of lively audience participation! And do your homework! Pio and I present the show in both Te Reo and English and the questions are mix of local, national and general knowledge." Says Stacey. "Oh and remember to look your best your going to be on TV" she adds.

Shows are pre-recorded live in front of local audiences and last year attracted sell out crowds! Because we're shooting live I'm afraid we have to ask you to leave the little ones at home - so no tamariki under eight please.
