The MATARIKI GLOW SHOW is back with an all-new, giant-scale puppet show for tamariki, educators and whãnau. The Glow Show’s magical glow-in-the-dark characters are getting ready to celebrate with you at 40 theatres around Aotearoa, alongside the first-ever nationwide Matariki holiday! Bigger, better, bolder; with more music and more characters; this is an upbeat show that ‘edu-tains’ and engages the audience over 50 minutes with patai (Q and A) afterwards. Shorter shows of 30 minutes are designed for 0-5yo. MATARIKI GLOW SHOW 2022 relates to our whakatauki at Matariki, with a strong theme of togetherness! Little Green Man Productions is thrilled to present MATARIKI GLOW SHOW in a theatre near you.
The GLOW SHOW team is back with WONDERLAND GLOW SHOW, a ‘kiwified’ interpretation of the classic ‘Alice in Wonderland’ tale for tamariki, educators, and whanau! Let your imagination soar as you are transported by the magic of giant scale glow-in-the-dark puppetry.
The mega edu-taining WONDERLAND GLOW SHOW promotes literacy and Te Reo Māori, celebrates the exquisite art of ultraviolet puppetry, and demonstrates “Being your most creative self! Hei tino auaha koe!” WONDERLAND GLOW SHOW is an upbeat, captivating show that dives headlong into a weird and wonderful world of dancing flamingos, shuffling cards, an 8 metre caterpillar, and giant flowers. But it’s not all rosy… there’s a March hare on the loose!

What’s the perfect recipe for unforgettable story nights? Take a handful of little munchkins, aged 2-8, slip them into some comfy jammies, add a dash of blanket and a smidge of soft toy, wrap them all up in music and blend the lot together with masterful storytelling and gentle fun. Leave to sleep gently till morning. (Milk and cookies are on us!)
