Sorry, this event’s been and gone

Ronda Armitage's stories about Mr Grinling, the lighthouse keeper are loved by many children. Now the lovable characters come to life on stage cleverly blending all the different Lighthouse Keeper stories into an entertaining and funny show.

Children join in the fun with all the antics of Mr and Mrs Grinling, Hamish the cat and the greedy seagulls.
Adapted by Tim Bray with original music and lyrics by Christine White, The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch is on stage at The PumpHouse Theatre, Takapuna, Auckland from September 25 to October 7 with a special gala opening on Saturday 23 September at 7.00pm.
