Thoroughly Modern Māui

No longer available

Wintergarden, The Civic


Many moons ago, a superhero of a different kind ruled this side of the Pacific. His name was Māui-Tikitiki-A-Taranga – MĀUI.  

A warrior and demigod, his adventures are woven into the fabric of Pacific history. In Aotearoa, this ‘Māori Superman’ was fast, fit, and funny. He was the total package. He slowed the sun, fished up the North Island and brought fire to the world!

Music theatre star, Rutene Spooner returns to Cabaret Season, channelling this Māori hero into a modern-day icon – complete with rhinestones and glitter.
