Aya and the Butterfly

Saturday 20th July 2024

Award-winning children’s theatre company, Birdlife Productions, are creating a new heart-warming
and joyful puppet show – about a little girl who overcomes grief through her experience of the
metamorphosis of the Monarch Butterfly.

This work is based on the book of the same name by Ōtautahi/Christchurch based author, Dr Maysoon Salama, who wrote the story for her young Granddaughter Aya, and all the tamariki of Aotearoa/New Zealand. Expect exquisite puppetry, live music, lots of joining in and giant caterpillar fun, as well as a poignant experience for children and their whanau.
