Audio described performances of Witi Ihimaera's Whale Rider, adapted by Tim Bray for children aged 3-10, will take place in September and October. There will be a touch tour an hour beforehand, and each show will last 50 minutes with no interval. 

Destined to become leader of her tribe, no matter how hard she tries to show her worth, Kahu’s koro (grandfather) won’t accept that a kōtiro (girl) can take over his role of chief. But a rescue of the ancient whale beached in the Whāngārā Harbour changes everything.

All performances are wheelchair accessible. Descriptive notes, a sensory relaxed story summary, and accessible programme, are available at the start of the season. See our website for ways to customise your experience and check out all accessibility resources

Costume Parade: Dress up in character! We love to see imaginations running wild and encourage our young audience to dress up as their favourite Whale Rider characters. We will show off the costumes onstage with a parade at the start of the performance (Note: Saturdays and holiday shows only).

When you make your booking you may like to donate to Gift a Seat™. Gift a Seat™ allows Tim Bray Theatre Company to offer free seats to a child from a low decile school, Ko Taku Reo Deaf Education, BLENNZ (Blind and Low Vision Education Network of NZ) or Make-A-Wish (NZ).
