The Worm

Event Details

The Worm children’s show written by Carl & Peter Bland and directed by Ben Crowder & Carl Bland is on at The Herald Theatre from to .

When a giant bird beak breaks through the ceiling and takes her mother away a little worm must go on an epic adventure to save her.

However the journey to the surface is riddled with danger. It takes the little worm through a dark subterranean world full of empty streets and flea-bitten bars. She must dodge the sharp spade of the gardener, outsmart poisonous spiders and battle the ruler of the underworld, The Blind Rat and his henchman Snail.

Taking us on a journey into the world of THE WORM is a cast that includes: the prolific and perpetually charming Bronwyn Bradley (Sweet Tooth, Mean Mums), our favourite Sāmoan pirate David Fane (Bro’Town, Our Flag Means Death), Auckland theatre’s favourite Brit, Andrew Grainger (Nightsong’s Te Pō, The Breaker Upperers), the incomparable and undeniably talented Anapela Polataivao (The Justice of Bunny King, The Panthers) and notable newcomer Albert Latailakepa (Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School.)

THE WORM not only features an original music score composed by Carnivorous Plant Society, but will host the talented quintet live on stage for each performance.

THE WORM is supported by the Local Activation Fund Programme, administered by Auckland Unlimited on behalf of the New Zealand Government. This is intended to get people back into Auckland Central and bring the city we all love back to life.
