Kapitall Kids Theatre is proud to present the première of new New Zealand work by fresh Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School and Victoria University Directing graduate, Tabitha Arthur.

The original play I Believe In Monsters was born out of Arthur's determination to bring strong original stories, independent characters, and fantastical worlds to quality children's theatre. Arthur holds much-loved children's book author Maurice Sendak of Where The Wild Things Are in high regard. She says “Maurice Sendak understood the intelligence of children. His gutsy approach to storytelling was one I respect. I aspire to create work that captures kid's imaginations, and empower them to think big”.

I Believe In Monsters follows Paige – a smart, imaginative girl, who loves writing stories – especially stories about monsters. But it turns out that monsters are really, actually real – and they need Paige's help!

This wonderful new play will thrill children and adults alike, with moments of delightful suspense and laugh-out-loud physical comedy. The story is woven together using fantastic monsters, enchanting puppets, delightfully monster-ish singing – and a touch of monster ballet. I Believe In Monsters will leave you bursting with determination to live life to the full!

Kapital Kids Theatre has been going for 13 years, supporting local work and artists, and this is their 40th production. The strong cast of three features experienced American actor Sarah Andrews Reynolds, Wellington-based Jason Tolley, and Maria Jones who arrived from England only three months ago. Directed by Tabitha Arthur, monster ballet choreography by Bea Lee Smith, and original songs composed by Hayden Taylor and Sarah Andrews Reynolds. Puppets designed and created by Jonathan Kingston-Smith.

I Believe In Monsters is suitable for all ages, and runs during the school holidays 1 – 12 October 2013, 11am and 1pm. No show Sunday, 11am only on Saturday 12 October. Gryphon Theatre, 22 Ghuznee Street, Wellington. Tickets $10, or $9 each for groups of 10 or more. Bookings phone Kapitall Kids Theatre (04) 934 4068.
