Arts on Tour NZ – The Boy with wings

April 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

$5 – $30

Using puppetry, songs, storytelling, and exquisite hand-crafted sets that magically unfold out of boxes, award-winning theatre company ‘Birdlife Productions’ promise laughter, tears and thrilling adventure when a young man’s epic journey unites with the miracle of Kuaka/Bar-tailed Godwit migration. In this high-tech fast-paced digital world, ‘The Boy with Wings’ offers families a counter to ‘screen time’ that allows space in ‘real-time’ for children to watch, listen and reflect. Melded with a real-time ornithological lecture, this is a comic, touching, and environmental story using the ageless wonder of puppetry that dares us all to follow our dreams!

Designed specifically for children ages 5 to 9 years, but loved by all ages!  Originally Directed by Dan Allan.

 “We gave it 1,000 out of 1,000!!!!”Karen ward, South New Brighton School

“It’s a gem of a puppet show! The set is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. The Sanders know how to construct beautiful worlds from your everyday cardboard box’ –
