Adapted from the best-selling book Tu Meke Tūī!, join two unlikely heroes, Tere the excitable tūī and Taitū the flightless takahē, as they work together to outwit Stan, the sly stoat, who has a beady eye on our native birds for his dinner.

This beautiful story incorporating physical theatre and puppetry will teach young tamariki about friendship, courage, and discovering that sometimes it's our differences that make us truly special.
