As four children play by the ocean, a large conch shell starts to whisper stories of the sea. Fluorescent fish float under a starry sky and a magical character appears in a rickety boat to tell his fishy tale…
The fabulously imaginative Songs of the Sea – Waiata O Te Moana features colourful puppets and infectiously catchy music, weaving together stories told in te reo Māori and English.
Explore the mysteries and myths of where the first fish came from in this magical story. From the Sun and Moon (Ra and Marama) to the Milky Way (Ite Ika o te Rangi) to the Great Shaper of the Universe, come a multitude of marine creatures.
Float in a star-filled sky and dive into a great underwater world as music and stage wizardry transform your day! Beautiful, playful and a joy to watch, this play will strike chords of wonder in younger audiences.
