Good things come in small packages!
The story of a tiny girl who embarks on a big adventure, making some lovely new friends along the way. There’s a fairy with a name complex, a frog whose parents are obsessed with reality TV shows, and a mole with marriage on his mind. Loaded with songs and audience participation, it’s lots of fun for big and small!
Rachel More is best known as a director for KidzStuff, most recently directing The Ugly Duckling in July, but this is the second play that she has written for children. The first was the highly successful, Cinderella last year.
We are delighted to have well known local actor and director, Simon Vincent on board for the first time. Simon is currently performing in My First Time at Circa Theatre.
The talented cast includes KidzStuff favourite, Bryony Skillington, who has starred in, Puss n Boots, The Pied Piper, Cinderella and most recently, The Ugly Duckling. She has also performed at BATS Theatre in her one woman cabaret Get Cuffed and (Not) The All India Radio Show. We are also introducing three newcomers to KidzStuff. Paul Harrop, who has just starred in The Nero show and The Great Gatsby at Circa, Anne Brashier, on a working holiday from the United States and recent Toi Whakaari graduate, Emma Draper.
