A beautiful story weaving the beauty of original waiata with a story of love and music comes to Thames Civic Centre. Tikapa Productions presents He Reo Aroha – Words of Love – in its first performance in Thames featuring local boy Jamie McCaskill.

Written by Miria George and Jamie McCaskill and directed by Hone Kouka, He Reo Aroha tells the story of two childhood sweethearts, Kaia and Pascoe – a pair who were always worlds apart. Kaia trains to sing, grooming her voice for greatness; while Pascoe works on the fishing boats with his father, a song never far from his lips. One summer’s night their voices entwine, sealing a love that will last a lifetime.

Choosing music over love, Kaia heads for New York, while broken-hearted Pascoe follows in his father’s footsteps. But when life doesn’t bring Kaia and Pascoe all they hoped for, they discover it is music that gets them through and love brings them back together.

This love story, featuring original music by Hone Hurihanganui, Kali Kopae and Jamie McCaskill, has enjoyed successful seasons in Australia, Canada and at the NZ International Arts Festival 2010.

“People who think romance is dead in Aotearoa should make it their business to see Hone Kouka’s touching but impressively unsentimental production of He Reo Aroha” – NZ Listener, 2010

“... a wonderful blend of music, drama, and comedy” – Scoop, 2010
