Known for their musical dynamics, Lytton High School are preparing to ‘Wow’ audiences with an original script and popular contemporary songs of Aotearoa in this year’s concert, ‘The Dawn of Te Matatini’. A story that goes back, way back, to a time before people and Te Mataini, as we know it.

A story told of a time when only the creatures of the land, sky and waters existed … and Maui. A story with themes of anti-bullying and environmental awareness are interspersed throughout the singing and cross-fit workouts.

With a mix of animals, reptiles and birds commonly found in Turanganui a Kiwa, the show features popular contemporary songs plus some well-known favourites. One of the creative director’s of the concert, Waiora Paul Utiera says, "It has been an amazing challenge for our students to dig deep within themselves to find the beauty of the natural world within and to bring it out through their performing and really letting nature herself shine."

A concert within a concert, watch the drama unfold as the characters battle it out on stage to win an ultimate prize, a prize that is still relished to this day.
