Baycourt Addison Theatre


$5.62– $21.50
All fees incl.


Presented by Mount Maunganui College

MAUAO is a devised theatre spectacular to celebrate Matariki and create new legends, featuring waiata, dance, haka and drama (monologue and poetry). The Mount Maunganui region is brimming with stories, some are ancient tales, some evoke fond memories, and others are important histories that have been forgotten over the years.

Directed and designed by Jason Te Mete, the mastermind behind recent Tauranga productions Takitimu, Mataatua and He Toi Kupu Uhi Tai, and supported by the Creatives In Schools Programme, MAUAO features a large cast of rangatahi and will be the most epic Mount Maunganui College production ever.
