Celebrating 25 years anniversary Tim Bray Productions - Auckland’s leading theatre for children - presents:

"A Lion in the Meadow and Other Stories" by Margaret Mahy, adapted for the stage by Tim Bray, songs by Christine White.

“Mother, there is a big, roaring, yellow, whiskery lion in the meadow!”

Join in the fun as some of Margaret Mahy’s best-loved stories are woven together into one enjoyable and imaginative show. Magical Mahy comes to life on stage.

Featuring Mahy’s stories A Lion in the Meadow, Leaf Magic and The Witch in the Cherry Tree, along with her poems, Magic and The Reluctant Hero, or Barefoot in the Snow.

“In all, a delightful hour spent enjoying Mahy, Bray, The Pumhouse, some extremely charming performances, a bevy of clever effects and a bunch of spirited kids. There’s no doubt magic won the day but with this team working together this was hardly ever in doubt. After all, where would we be if there was no magic in the world.” - Review, Lexie Matheson, Theatreview
