Event Details

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 at Vodafone Events Centre from 25th May to 29th May in Manukau.

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, you will 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.
