Monsters in Canterbury Lend a Hand in Fundraiser

Monsters in Canterbury Lend a Hand in Fundraiser

Funny, friendly fury monsters will entertain Canterbury families in just over a week in a professional puppet show.

ALL proceeds from this not-for-profit show will go towards Christchurch’s Sutherland family.

Five-year-old Lachie was diagnosed with aggressive cancer. Sadly, just as he finished his gruelling treatment, his father Chris, was diagnosed with terminal skin cancer.

Chris passed away six weeks after being diagnosed.

The puppet show will be performed by professional puppeteer Chris Lynch, supported by Christchurch staging and lighting company ETS.

Lynch is the performer of Australasia’s first official Disney Muppet and has puppeteered on a number of well-known children’s television programmes.

The show takes place on September 7th at the brand new Charles Luney Auditorium, St Margaret’s College, 2pm. The show is selling out fast. Admission $15.00 per person.
