WHAT IS TE MOANA GLOW SHOW?
It’s literally legendary! A giant scale puppet show for tamariki with magical glow-in-the-dark characters from MÄori myth and legend. This innovative, cutting edge concept features 40+ glow-in-the-dark puppets under ultraviolet light in a black box theatre environment.
Rich in Te Reo MÄori, it’s an upbeat 45-minute show with catchy music that has the audience buzzing from the onset. There’s an abundance of educational content to unpack with a Q&A session afterwards and resources online at www.glowshow.co.nz
In an ALL NEW SHOW for 2020 we’re going under the sea! A courageous Kina goes on a journey of discovery across the Pacific to Aotearoa. Helped by Hiwa-i-te-rangi she meets many delightful (and not so delightful!) characters. He waka eke noa- we’re all in this together!
“Thank you for putting on a great show. It was so great it nearly blew my shoes off!” – Josh (PAPAKURA CENTRAL SCHOOL, 2019)
“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 MAY, 2019)
