Land of the Long Long Drive

18 Kenilworth Street, Waipawa

This show for Kiwi kids features iconic New Zealand creatures, landscapes and fresh waiata by NZ singer-songwriter Benny Tipene, and beautiful costumes from Gridley by Victoria, costumier for the Royal New Zealand Ballet and is suitable for ages 3-10 years.

Wētā, Tuna and Kārearea are mates of Gary the Glowworm, and are travelling to attend his rave in the cave birthday party. The friends face a number of trials on the road, and learn that despite their differences, they can achieve their goals by working together!

Winner of the 3–8-year-old section of Playmarket’s Plays for the Young Competition, Land of the Long Long Drive brings you a laugh-out-loud, inspiring adventure of three unlikely heroes.

This performance is presented by Arts on Tour NZ and supported by Central Hawke’s Bay District Council.
