The Adventures of Tahi and Kōwhai

By Little Dog Barking Theatre Company

Directed by Jacqueline Coats

Will love win the day?

This July school holidays, Little Dog Barking Theatre Company invites you to a prequel to 2021’s The White Tree. Follow the adventures of that story’s most popular comic characters, Tahi and Kōwhai, as these two young hoiho work to create their first home together. Facing a number of challenges along the way, can these two yellow-eyed penguins find a way to be together?

Combining the languages of puppetry, music, English, Te Reo and NZSL, this comic heart-warming tale will thrill and inspire both the young and the young-at-heart.

Featuring an original score by Liam Reid, set design by Tolis Papazoglou, and puppets by Sue Hill.
