Puppets perform live at the Museums

Entry by koha


Two original New Zealand made puppet shows are coming to Colonial Cottage Museum and Museum of Wellington City & Sea these July school holidays. On Wednesday 16 July at 2pm, Pulcinella and the Epic Pizza delivery show will be performed at Colonial Cottage Museum, and on Friday 18 July at 2pm, Museum of Wellington City & Sea will host Once in a Full Moon.

New Zealand puppeteer Anna Bailey has created two original shows for children aged four and over.

In Colonial Cottage Museum’s Wednesday show, a pizza delivery to New Zealand from Italy takes a dramatic spin in Pulcinella and the Epic Pizza delivery. Pulcinella (Punch's Italian cousin) makes a world record pizza delivery when he takes an order from New Zealand. On this epic journey he has to evade New Zealand customs, take on a black sheep and do battle with Death himself. After the show, kids will have the opportunity to create their own hand puppets.

In Museum of Wellington City & Sea’s Friday show, a lonely kiwi will follow his dreams. Once in a Full Moon depicts the story of a lonely kiwi deep in New Zealand bush. The kiwi looks up at the sky and mistakes the full moon for a giant egg. After the show kids will make crazy huhu grub string puppets.

Head of Programmes and Learning, Rachel Ingram says, “We’re excited to be showing two live and original puppet shows these school holidays. It’s a great way for kids to come together and enjoy stories involving New Zealand. We’re thrilled that kids get the opportunity to create their own puppets after the show, which may inspire them to create their own shows and stories at home.”

Entry to both Wednesday 16 July and Friday 18 July puppet shows and puppet making sessions is by koha. All are welcome to come along and enjoy two afternoons of exciting and original New Zealand puppet shows presented by Anna Bailey. Bookings aren’t required.

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind. There were often several trials, which sometimes featured over 150 players, possibly an inter island match or a final trial, then we listened to the announcement of the team on radio.
