Coming these July School Holidays!

These July school holidays, you can join fledgling friends, Tim and Em, as they set off on a journey around the world and beyond. Everyday objects transform and come to life as they explore the depths of the ocean and the plains of the Savanna before turning their eyes towards the stars… Wonderkind is a brand-new, magical theatre experience for children aged three to seven that explores the endless possibilities for wonder and joy that lie in true friendship. 

Combining puppetry, live performance, stunning visual design, a delightful original music score and the epic power of imagination, Wonderkind will take you and your whānau on the journey of a lifetime.

Wonderkind features original music by Craig Sengelow, production design by Sean Coyle and Megan Gladding, costume design by Ebony Cook-Green and puppetry by international puppeteer Ana Lorite of Naranjarte.
