Auckland’s orchestra invites its furry friends from hit children’s TV show The Moe Show for its first APO 4 Kids concert of 2021. Moe and the whole gang return to the APO to present Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
Composed specifically for children, the concert will engage and delight your pre-schoolers. From the big, shiny instruments to the tall, skinny, whistley-ones, to the funny little dances that conductors have to do at the podium! There’s a lot to learn, and even more fun to be had!
Kicking it all off, kids are encouraged to join a special Show and Tell in the foyer, where musicians will be performing and showing off their instruments 45-minutes before the concert. Kids are encouraged to watch, listen, and even have a go at some of the instruments on display.
And don’t forget the walk-through of the orchestra as the musicians play the final pieces of the day.

Encore Theatre Collective is proud to present a dazzling new production of Seussical The Musical, based on the immortal works of Dr Seuss. Seussical brings to life many infamous and well-loved Dr Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird and, of course, the Cat in the Hat. These characters and stories weave together in a whimsical and wacky musical extravaganza, played out against an uplifting score, and highlighting the show’s universal messages of love and acceptance – reminding us all that “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”
