Event Details

Tim Bray Productions brings to life A Lion in the Meadow and Other Margaret Mahy’s timeless tales in a magical show that celebrates the wonderment of children’s imagination at The Pumphouse Theatre in the April school hoidays.

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,  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.

Featuring a cast of memorable characters and a story brought to life with a live music soundtrack, this fun-filled escapade for the whole family will set imaginations soaring.
