Box of Birds
Puppetry and Songs for ages 3 to 7
'Truly a New Zealand show for New Zealand children and all those young-at-heart'
Read the full review here: theatreview march, 2020
Designed specifically for 3 to 7 years and including live music and songs and the magical wonder of puppetry. 30 mins long and easily transportable and set up in a small intimate space,
(2m deep x 3m wide) indoors or outside.
Written, created and performed by Bridget and Roger Sanders,
Peter and his grandma build a nesting box for Ruru,
but Peter must be patient and wait to discover
who will eventually nest in his box of birds!
The bird characters are familiar New Zealand locals
and the story introduces young children
to the idea of supporting our birdlife and the
different needs they may have.
"The music was great, the children joined in straight away singing along - these guys should put out a C.D"
Atawhai Kids Kindergarten
"They work so well as a united team, supporting the narrative and ensuring the delivery is mesmerizing
for all the audience, Tamariki and Kaiako alike"
Casa dei Bambini, Christchurch
"After the show the children were looking out and identifying Tui and Piwakawaka in our preschool!"
Thanks to Arts Council Nelson for generously supporting us in the making of this show.
