Was a Pirate!
Was a Pirate!
Sat 13th - Fri 26th April
Tim Bray’s adaptation of a well-loved children’s story, by New Zealand's most celebrated children's author Margaret Mahy.
Sam be an ordinary man - and his Mum be anything but ordinary, she be a Pirate!
Sam has never seen the sea, his Mum reckons he should. Do you? We think it be time for ye to sea!
Grab ye eye patches, fasten ye belt buckles and transform ye selves into scallywag pirates.
This be a story about fun, silliness, freedom, Mum's, wheelbarrows and sons.
So set sail down to the Tararua Tramping Club and dance a shanty with The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate.

Hansel and Gretel
Sat 6th - Fri 19th July
An energetic new Kiwi revival of the old Brothers Grimm classic, Hansel and Gretel.
Hans and G as known in our version are up for an adventure of tremendous proportions. Facing an evil stepmother, an out of control pair of children’s elastics, magic sleeping powder and a very hungry witch!
Filled with lively, music and original songs. With physical comedy and a very colourful cast and set, Hans and G promises to be more fun than you can throw a stick at.
The Pied Piper
Sat 28th Sept - Friday 11th Oct
The Pied Piper is an exciting New Zealand revival of an old German legend, sprinkled with songs and KidzStuff’s magic touch.
Are you ready to come along for a ride this spring and enter the imaginary world of Abby, Marco and their Dad?
Dad is a very good story teller, his tales are full of greedy characters, silly characters, forgetful characters and funny ratty type characters. Not to mention: Darth pirate, Candy the sugarfree fairy and The Pied Piper himself.
