Auckland Theatre Company reprises Pollyhood in Mumuland

ATC reprises Pollyhood in Mumuland

This coming school holidays, Auckland Theatre Company will reprise Lauren Jackson's wildly popular family show Polly Hood in Mumuland in partnership with the Mangere Arts Centre Ngā Tohu o Uenuku.

Polly Hood In Mumuland, written by Lauren Jackson, is an hilarious twist on a classic fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.

Polly's mother commands her to take a basket of goodies to her sick Grandma. But living in West Mumuland means a long cautious journey to South Mumuland. So with her cousin Maile tagging along they take on the challenge of a roaming wolf, and tread dangerous territory of singing chickens, talking trees, and Polly's crazy Aunty Sila who has stolen the family car. Can Polly and Maile make it to Grandma in time?

With a cast lead by south Auckland's freshest talent, Polly Hood In Mumulandis an all-singing, all-dancing musical extravaganza for the whole family. Filled with Pasifika performance styles, hip hop, dancing trees and plenty of mumus, the classic fairy tale gets a fresh, fun and high-energy edge these school holidays.

"This kind of show is unique to Auckland - it celebrates and is a tribute to the largest Pacific city in the world," says Lynne Cardy, Auckland Theatre Company's Associate Director.

"It'll be a great first experience of theatre that the whole family will love; it'll hook people on theatre for life. We guarantee if you get involved that you'll never want to leave Mumuland," Cardy says.

Polly Hood in Mumuland is presented by Auckland Theatre Company.
