Live theatre back at Capital E this July!

This July School Holidays Capital E welcomes live theatre into our indoor playspace, with Peter Wilson’s much-loved Little Kowhai Tree and Jamie McCaskill’s ingenious Mata and the Mysterious Musical Maunga catering for children aged 2-6 and 7+ respectively.

Little Kowhai Tree

Little Kowhai Tree is a story of growing up, seeds are planted, green shoots begin to appear, and Little Kowhai begins her journey towards adulthood. A perfect introduction to live theatre, this play leaves young children spellbound with the fantastic puppets, all creatures they recognise from their own garden. Sung in both English and Te Reo Māori, Little Kowhai Tree is a great learning experience that’s also a lot of fun and ideal for children aged 2-6. Directed by Jacqueline Coats and featuring music by Laughton Patrick, this collaboration with Little Dog Barking Theatre Company runs from Tues 11 – Sat 15 July at Capital E.

Mata and the Mysterious Musical Maunga

One of the hits of the National Arts Festival, we welcome Mata and the Mysterious Musical Maunga back to Capital E this July. Featuring dangerous challenges and charmingly quirky characters, this is a theatre show like no other, a musical adventure that’s fun filled and action packed. Jamie McCaskill’s endlessly inventive play follows 10 year old Mata, as he journeys to a mysterious maunga to see an ancient kōauau. Guided by nga manu and his love for waiata, Mata is a true original, who learns from every encounter he experiences. In collaboration with Tikapa Productions, we’re excited to have Mata and the Mysterious Musical Maunga showing at Capital E from Mon 17 – Sat 22 July.

Gordon Campbell: On The Case For Nationalising Our Urban Bus Services

Those basic questions re-surfaced yesterday, after the government announced its intention to scrap the Public Transport Operating Model (PTOM) imposed by the last National government in 2013.
