Matariki Glow Show!

Thu 20 Jun

It’s literally legendary! A giant scale puppet show for 5 -10yr olds like you’ve never seen before, with magical glow-in-the-dark characters from Maori myth and legend! This innovative, cutting edge new concept combines glow-in-the-dark puppets under ultraviolet light inside a black box theatre space.

Rich in Te Reo Maori, it’s an upbeat show that has the audience buzzing from the onset, with a myriad of education to take back to the classroom. It’s a masterful 40-minute show, underpinned by catchy, music that engages the audience immediately, followed by a Q and A session afterwards for your tamariki.

Its voice and story are accessible to all. At its core is a delightful story about the Matariki star sisters as they prepare for Te Tau Hou and the journey of the smallest star, Waipuna-a-Rangi. 45 puppet characters are brought to life by the extraordinary talents of our puppeteers.

The 2018 MATARIKI GLOW SHOW toured from the Far North to South Auckland and attracted 12,000+ school children to 60 shows at 10 venues and many shows were sold out. And now it’s your turn! We are coming to a venue very near your school and we’re bringing our 5-metre-long taniwha and all his friends with us. You can’t miss us!
