During this two day kids holiday programme at Waldheim, Seven Oaks, participants (8-13 years) will play in our orchards and woodlands using mask, puppetry, physical theatre, design and music inspired by the legend of Matariki and her 6 daughters and their equivalents in Greek mythology.

The Free Theatre Education Programme is proudly supported by Creative Communities.
Previous holiday programme themes have included Upside-down Worlds, Conference of the Birds, Creation Myths, Greek Gods and Heroes, Alice in Wonderland, Odysseus and the Cyclops, Antarctica and the Olympic Games.
These are unique opportunities to experience and learn from one of New Zealand's leading exponents of contemporary performance. And they're heaps of fun!
We also teach performance for Adults and offer Workshops in Schools.
See above the short films created by our students during our 2018 Kidsfest Programme. They were inspired by the work of filmmaker Georges Méliès and the Cyclops story in Homer's Odyssey.
