A Lion in the Meadow and Other Stories by Margaret Mahy has been adapted for the stage by Tim Bray with songs by Christine White, and has an NZSL interpreted performance in Mangere, Auckland on 15 May.
The play is suitable for ages three to ten and show run time is 50 minutes.
'A Lion in the Meadow and Other Stories' brings to life Margaret Mahy’s timeless tales in a magical show that celebrates the wonder of children’s imagination. Weaving through Mahy’s much loved stories 'A Lion in the Meadow', 'Leaf Magic' and 'The Witch in the Cherry Tree', and her poems 'Magic' and 'The Reluctant Hero', or 'Footprints in the Snow', we journey with a young boy on his spellbound adventures.
Featuring a cast of memorable characters and a story brought to life with a live music soundtrack, this fun-filled escapade for the whole family will set imaginations soaring.
Costume parade: We love to see imaginations running wild and encourage our young audience to dress up as their favourite Margaret Mahy character. We will take a moment to show off the costumes onstage with a parade at the start of the performance (Note: School holiday shows only).
