Illuminate kids’ hearts and minds with this magical giant-scale glow-in-the-dark puppet show! Go under the sea with a courageous Kina on her journey of discovery across the Pacific Ocean to Aotearoa. It’s a delightful story of our kai moana and the whakatauki ‘He waka eke noa. We are all in this together.’
This innovative, cutting edge concept features 40+ glow-in-the-dark puppets under UV lights in a black box theatre environment. 15,000+ children saw the extraordinary Matariki Glow Show in 2017/18 and 25,000+ children saw it in 2019. The ALL NEW Te Moana Glow Show is a must-see for 2020!
The production was created by puppet designer/creator Sarah Burren who collaborated with composer/musical director Midge Perez. They have an impressive history, having worked together on 20 children’s shows. Sarah has been involved in the concept/design/production of over 100 stage shows and live events both in NZ and internationally. They sought the guidance and approval of kaumātua Dr Haare Williams (amorangi in arts, culture and education) to create a story that ignites the spirit and pride of our tamariki.
Recommended for ages 2 – 10. This production is suitable for special needs children.
“If Matariki Glow Show is a small child’s first experience of theatre, then they will be very lucky. A fun and entertaining feast with a wonderful contemporary story of Aotearoa.” - Cate Prestidge (Theatreview) 2019
