Whoa Workshops

Whoa Workshops


We have just waved goodbye to the last group of young designers as part of our first series of holiday workshops here at Whoa! Studios.

They had a huge amount of fun, exploring behind the scenes, meeting the puppeteers, and producing their very own UFO model.

It was a pleasure to have such a fantastic group of children from all over Auckland as part of our junior design team.

Have a peek at our participants exploring behind the scenes and putting together their very own miniature UFO.

Stay tuned on our Whoa! Studios Facebook page and see our website, Whoa! Studios for new and exciting workshops & events.





School holidays start THIS FRIDAY and Whoa! Studios is gearing up for a big couple of weeks. Our operating hours are extending on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday until 6pm!

So if you’re stuck wondering “What should we do these school holidays with the kids?” Whoa! Studios is the place to be. Our latest show premiered this month – ‘Gloomio the Great’ – this is our latest addition to the Custard’s World universe. ‘Gloomio the Great’ is showing Wednesday to Friday at 11:00am and Saturday & Sunday at 11:00am & 2:00pm. Be sure to purchase your tickets online to ensure the lowest price available.

Gloomio The Great! features our puppet heroes: Custard; his BFF (best feathered friend!) Kea; inventor, Brianna; class joker, Buzz; and his cute little sister, Jazz.

Their happy hometown of Doodle is under threat, from the smile-stealing, would-be Super-Villain, Dr Gloom! Assisted by genius, young inventor Agar, and his bumbling assistant, Colin, Dr Gloom is plotting to steal the entire town’s smiles by putting on a magic show!

A rollercoaster ride of magical mishaps, pantomime-style family fun, and slapstick silliness, Gloomio The Great! features original music and songs, 3D projections, video, state-of-the-art lighting and sound.
