Matariki Glow Show

Presented by: Little Green Man Productions and The Glow Show Co.

20,000+ children will see it in 2019. 

The Matariki Glow Show – it’s literally legendary! A giant scale puppet show for 5-9 year olds with magical glow-in-the-dark characters from Maori myth and legend. This innovative, cutting edge new concept features 45 glow-in-the-dark puppets under ultraviolet light in a black box theatre environment. 

Rich in Te Reo Maori, this upbeat show has the audience buzzing right  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 as well as a free storybook handed out to every child. 

The show tells a delightful story of the Matariki star sisters as they prepare for Te Tau Hou (the Maori New Year) and the journey of the smallest star, Waipuna-a-Rangi. The show has been an absolute hit - the 2018 Matariki Glow Show toured from the Far North to South Auckland and attracted 12,000+ school children to 60 shows at 10 venues with many shows sold out.
