Sing to Me

  • Theatre
  • Auckland Premiere

SCHOOL MATINEE

Inspired by the Pania of the Reef legend, this intoxicating modern romance interweaves comedy with song and characters you’ll instantly fall in love with.

Two worlds collide when mild-mannered optometrist Ata and fierce sea maiden Whetū fall in love. The result: a child of both land and sea, with Ata and Whetū navigating challenges of cross-cultural relationships, the loss of Ata’s friend and differing ideas of parenthood.

Set against the backdrop of a climate in crisis, Sing to Me is a powerful reimagining of pūrākau/stories of old in the 21st century.

Let it transport you to another world, a realm wonderfully crafted from the talented minds of playwright Alex Lodge, director Miriama McDowell, and a creative team including Jane Hakaraia, Te Aihe Butler and Te Ura Hoskins. Actors Scotty Cotter and Emma Katene work with live musician/performer Te Aihe to evoke a modern mythical realm, brought to the mainstage by Taki Rua Productions.
