Dave Fane & Aroha White, presenters with special guest, Bret McKenzie

Three classic stories take to the stage in a family concert filled with laughter and magic, presented by David Fane, Aroha White and Flight of the Conchords’ Bret McKenzie.

Who remembers listening to Saturday morning radio stories? Composer Thomas Goss does! Inspired by Alwyn Owen’s tale, How the Kiwi Lost his Wings, Goss created a delightful musical story, Tane and the Kiwi. Its perky and indomitable little hero has delighted New Zealand audiences for over a decade. Aroha White lends her voice to the birds of New Zealand that star in this story.

Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf is a popular favourite that needs no introduction – except this time, the orchestra gives Prokofiev’s classic a Pasifika twist. Adapted by David Armstrong, Peter turns into Pita, thanks to David Fane of Bro’town and Outrageous Fortune fame.

Bret McKenzie leads the laughter in a musical adaptation of Dr Seuss’ humorous children’s tale, Gerald McBoing-Boing. Gerald can’t speak words; he just goes “boing boing” instead. Watch Flight of the Conchords’ Bret Mckenzie ham it up in front of the orchestra!
