The GLOW SHOW team is back with Wonderland Glow Show, a ‘Kiwi-fied’ interpretation of the classic Alice in Wonderland tale for tamariki, educators, and whānau!

Let your imagination soar as you are transported by the magic of giant scale glow-in-the-dark puppetry. The mega edu-taining Wonderland Glow Show promotes literacy and Te Reo Māori, celebrates the exquisite art of ultra-violet puppetry, and demonstrates being your most creative self! Hei tino auaha koe!

The Wonderland Glow Show is an upbeat, engaging show that dives headlong into a weird and wonderful world of dancing flamingos, shuffling cards, an 8-metre long caterpillar and giant flowers. But it’s not all rosy…there’s a march hare on the loose!

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.”

Hot on the heels of their sold-out season of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the June season of Seussical features 120 of the country’s finest young talent, ranging in age from 9-23.

With spectacular choreography, unbelievable production design, and slick vocals, Encore Theatre Collective’s Seussical The Musical is the theatrical offering of 2021 that you will not want to miss!
