“Mother, there is a big, roaring, yellow, whiskery lion in the meadow!” A Lion in the Meadow and Other Stories brings to life Margaret Mahy’s timeless tales in a magical show
“Mother, there is a big, roaring, yellow, whiskery lion in the meadow!”
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.
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.
Costume Parade: Dress up in character! We love to see imaginations running wild and encourage our young audience to dress up as their favourite Margaret Mahy character. We will take a moment to show off the costumes onstage with a parade at the start of the performance (Note: Saturday shows only).
Created for Ages: 3-10
Show Run Time: 50 mins
NZ Sign Language Interpreted performance on 22nd May
