Shoot for the Stars!
Matariki Glow Show will have kids on the edge of their seats! Watch as the magic unfolds with more than 40 glow in the dark puppets, including a 5 metre long Taniwha, telling a delightful story of the Matariki stars as they prepare for the Māori New Year
A giant scale puppet show for 2+ year olds with magical glow-in-the-dark characters from Maori myth and legend. This innovative, cutting edge new concept features more than 40 glow-in-the-dark puppets under ultraviolet light in a black box theatre environment. The show tells a delightful story of the Matariki stars as they prepare for Te Tau Hou (Maori New Year) and the journey of the smallest star, Waipuna-a-Rangi.
Rich in Te Reo Māori, it’s an upbeat show that has the audience buzzing from the onset.This masterful 40-minute show is underpinned by catchy music that engages the audience immediately, followed by a Q and A session afterwards for our tamariki. There’s an abundance of educational content to take back to the classroom.
Seats are limited so get in quick!

“Only 30 seconds gone and all of us are captivated, spellbound and lapping it up.”
— ALAN SCOTT (2018 THEATREVIEW)
“Teachers teach. But good teachers lead us into the inner, wilder places of the mind. Give our kids the Maui spark that will lift them and, once in flight, let them soar. Matariki does that by giving our tamariki a fresh beginning by tracking to where they’ve come from – by remembering their ancestors.
I am delighted to support this programme which allows us to celebrate our own corner of Earth here in Aotearoa New Zealand with our own iconic narratives, heroes and deities.”
