A national Arts on Tour NZ Tour

“It’s a gem of a puppet show! The set is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. The Sanders know how to construct beautiful worlds from your everyday cardboard box’ - Ines Maria Almeida, Theatreview, March 2021

Using puppetry, songs, storytelling, and exquisite hand-crafted sets that magically unfold out of boxes, award-winning theatre company ‘Birdlife Productions’ promise laughter, tears and thrilling adventure when a young man’s epic journey unites with the miracle of Kuaka/Bar-tailed Godwit migration. In this high-tech fast-paced digital world, ‘The Boy with Wings’ offers families a counter to ‘screen time’ that allows space in ‘real-time’ for children to watch, listen and reflect. Melded with a real-time ornithological lecture, this is a comic, touching, and environmental story using the ageless wonder of puppetry that dares us all to follow our dreams!

Designed specifically for children ages 5 to 9 years, but loved by all ages! Originally Directed by Dan Allan.

“We gave it 1,000 out of 1,000!!!!” - Karen ward, South New Brighton School
