Te Kuia me te Pūngāwerewere is returning!

After a successful 2023 tour, we are bringing back Jamie McCaskill's Te Reo Māori Te Kuia me te Pūngāwerewere to continue to delight tamariki.

The show is based on the children’s book by Patricia Grace and illustrated by Robyn Kahukiwa. Performed completely in te reo Māori, Te Kuia me te Pūngāwerewere is the untold story of the Kuia and her relationship with Pūpai the spider. While in the midst of their daily bickering, Kuia and Pūpai are suddenly transported from their Paekākāriki home into the world of spiders. There, they must work together to save Spider World from suburban sprawl.
