TORO PIKOPIKO PUPPETS BLOG DECEMBER 16, 2019

Since premiering my new puppet musical MAMA LONG-FIN at the Pumphouse Theatre in Takapuna, we have also developed and begun touring a 45 minute pre-school version for our Kindergarten audience, at Auckland, Hamilton and Cambridge Kindergartens.
MAMA LONG-FIN is an environmental themed musical about an eighty year-old eel and the obstacles she has to overcome on her once-in-a-lifetime journey to the breeding grounds of Hawaiiki. MAMA LONG- FIN features 120 fabulous fold-out ‘Flatsie’ puppets including long-fin, short fin, moray and conger eels, rainbow trout, koura, kokopu and other aquatic creatures that audience children get to puppeteer with us as we tell the story together.
