Event Details

This school holidays, bring the tamariki to see “It’s Alive!” a brand-new theatre show for the whole whānau. This fun and silly show, designed especially for tamariki aged 5-10, features science experiments live on stage, and gives kids the opportunity to directly influence the actor’s decisions and show storyline. 

The show follows two young wannabe scientists who try to do their Best Experiment Ever, only for it to go horribly wrong and accidentally create a puppet. Will the puppet be a friend, or will they cause chaos for the kids to clean up before mum gets home? 

Brought to you by Improverished, the improvised theatre company behind family-friendly shows. “It’s Alive!” is their latest show, and it’s sure to bring the same sense of joy and silliness as their other beloved performances.

All the  science experiments have been designed with careful consultation with chemists to ensure the safety of the  audience, and they can be done at home as school holiday projects.

It’s Alive!” combines theatre, comedy, science, puppetry, and improvisation into a joyful 45-minute adventure that will blast your socks off.

This show has been designed especially for primary-school aged tamariki (ages 5-10) and their whānau, but can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages. They do not recommend this show for children aged 3 and under.
