The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate by Margaret Mahy.

Adapted by Tim Bray with songs by Christine White.
Directed by Amanda Rees

Ahoy me’ hearties! Margaret Mahy's rollicking and funny pirate adventure, which makes for a brilliant family outing.

The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate tells the story of Sam, an ordinary man who wears an ordinary suit and who works in an ordinary office. But his mother is an extraordinary mother - she's a pirate and yearns to see the sea again.

A wonderful and madcap adventure ensues as they travel to the sea, with much audience involvement. You and your children will adore this all-time favourite story by New Zealand’s literary treasure, Margaret Mahy.

Dress Up! Join us on stage for the Pirate Parade prior to the start of the show. Remember, arrive early so you don't miss it.
