Celebrating 25 years (1991 - 2016) Tim Bray Productions – Auckland’s leading theatre for children – presents:

The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch by Ronda and David Armitage

adapted by Tim Bray, song by Christine White

Children love Mr Grinling, the lighthouse keeper. Join in the fun with Mr and Mrs Grinling, Hamish the cat and the greedy seagulls, in a tale that cleverly blends *three of the favourite Lighthouse Keeper stories into one entertaining and funny show.

“It’s worth simply reiterating how entertaining and worthwhile this show is for all ages – some parents were as vocal as the kiddies!…another terrific holiday event from the master and his team.” – Review, Nik Smythe, Theatreview

*The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch, The Lighthouse Keeper’s Rescue and The Lighthouse Keeper’s Tea
