Talofa Papa Whakatāne Season.

After a sell-out, award-winning season in the 2018 New Zealand Fringe Festival, Papa is going on tour and looking forward to seeing his Whakatāne aiga at Theatre Whakatāne's Gateway Drive Club rooms after a successful return season in the 2018 Kia Mau Festival in Wellington.

Talofa Papa, created and performed by Kasiano Mita, takes you on a journey with your grandparents at the comfort of your jandals.

Papa shapes the audience's story using Samoan culture and mischief! Reminding you that you need to slow down and breathe in the rich idea of family.

This is a family-friendly show, with fun, laughter, audience interaction and a naughty fala/mat so don't be late.

- Most Outstanding Performer (Kasiano Mita, NZ Fringe 2018)
- Most Promising Emerging Theatre Company (The Co - Lab, NZ Fringe 2018)
- Adelaide Fringe Tour Ready Award (Talofa Papa, NZ Fringe 2018)

Talofa Papa had a sold out season in the New Zealand Fringe Festival so book now to avoid disappointment!
