Sione and the Beanstalker is another romp through wonderland as the characters of many different fairy tales mix and mingle to produce this hilarious panto-rhyme. It begins in the home of Sione who wants to go to the school ball but can't afford the ticket, miraculously he finds that he has a hairy godmother, willing to grant him untold wishes to fulfill his every desire. The story is fast-paced and steam-rollers towards a climactic close.

Expect the unexpected!

This show is especially relevant to those who are young at heart and is suitable for children of all ages with some recognisable fairytale favourites and some new and unusual characters that will have you laughing out loud.

The Black Friars undertake this show as it is an unusual style of theatre that combines pacific island humour with mainstream, traditional storytelling. The tales that are used are familiar to all and they maintain their continued relevance and resonance throughout the ages. We are endeavouring to keep these fairytales alive and present in a new generation of New Zealanders from all walks of life.

Show duration: 1 hour.
