Land of the Long, Long Drive

Tuesday 16th April 2024

Weta, Tuna and Kārearea are mates of Gary the Glowworm, and are travelling to attend his Rave in the Cave birthday party. The friends face a number of trials on the road and learn that, despite their differences, they can achieve their goals by working together.

This is Land of the Long, Long Drive, a tale for Kiwi kids, featuring iconic New Zealand creatures and landscapes, and fresh waiata by New Zealand singer-songwriter Benny Tipene. It’s a story that has been loved by audiences from tots to grandparents. The show jumps into life with beautiful costumes from Gridley by Victoria, Costumier for the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

The performance lasts 1 hour.
