TSB Theatre, Taranaki

 NZSL Interpreted Performance

Packed with high-energy dance numbers, and unforgettably catchy songs, Matilda is a joyous girl-power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by this story of a special little girl with an extraordinary imagination and extraordinary powers!

The daughter of unloving parents, Matilda finds refuge in library books. Things are no better at school, where Matilda also must face a tyrannical and cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, who believes in school’s motto: “Bambinatum est Magitum,” or “Children are Maggots.” She finds companionship in her teacher, Miss Honey, though well-intentioned, is shy and fragile.

Brave little Matilda knows she has to stand up against the adults in her world, and in doing so, discovers her own remarkable powers. Matilda’s bravery teaches Miss Honey and her classmates an important lesson -- that even though life can be hard, “nobody but me is gonna change my story” so “sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.”

The Whale Rider NZSL Interpreted Performance.jpg

September 2022 | Various Dates and Times 

Various Auckland Venues

 NZSL Interpreted Performances

 

 Witi Ihimaera’s classic story ‘The Whale Rider’ is a beautifully rich story of whānau and tikanga is masterfully translated into a live performance that will absorb the viewer, from start to end. 

 

A poignant tale of forging paths and self-belief, this is the show all children need to see.

Destined to become leader of her tribe, no matter how hard she tries to show her worth, Kahu’s koro (grandfather) won’t accept that a kōtiro (girl) can take over his role of chief. But a rescue of the ancient whale beached in the Whāngārā Harbour, changes things

 Dawn Raids is a witty and warm story about a Pasifika family living in 1970’s Central Auckland. The family’s lives revolve around music, community and faith until the government attempts to crackdown on overstayers with targeted dawn raids that plant fear and suspicion in the community.
