About A Lion in the Meadow and Other Stories:
A Lion in the Meadow and Other Stories brings to life Margaret Mahy’s timeless tales in a magical show that celebrates the wonderment of children’s imagination. Weaving through Mahy’s much loved stories ‘A Lion in the Meadow’, ‘Leaf Magic’ and ‘The Witch in the Cherry Tree’, and her poems ‘Magic’ and ‘The Reluctant Hero, or Footprints in the Snow’, we journey with a young boy on his spellbound adventures. Celebrating the places a youthful imagination can take us, the young boy’s mother misses the magic lost in the tasks of adulthood – a reminder to keep the fires of our imaginations burning.
About Roald Dahl’s The Twits:
A delicious Roald Dahl creation. Mr and Mrs Twit are nasty and love playing tricks on each other. The things they get up to are a sight to behold! Would you like a glass eyeball in your drink? How about some worms in your spaghetti? Who doesn’t like a slimy frog in their bed? And would you believe how they make their favourite treat, Wednesday Bird Pie….it’s a sticky idea. Their antics will have you gasping in amusement and giggling along.
But when Mr Twit turns his nasty attentions to creating the World’s First Upside-Down Monkey Circus with Muggle-Wump the monkey, things get turned upside down and the Twits get a dose of their own nasty ways.
The pre-show introduction, where you’ll meet the actors and have a demonstration of the lights, sound, and surprises in the show, begins 15 minutes prior to show time. Shows are on at The PumpHouse Theatre in Takapuna.
