Land of the Long Long Drive

This school holidays head to Circa to see Land of the Long Long Drive. There is singing, dancing, gorgeous costumes, and set to tell a story about friendship, journey and conservation set right here in Aotearoa. The cast is diverse and delightfully talented; let's make piercings, tattoos, all genders and ethnicities the norm on stage. You may recognise Jthan Morgan from Cringeworthy also running at Crica, or previous pantomimes, she lights up a stage and it's a credit to her cast mates that they manage to shine just as brightly as she does.

The adults outnumbered the kids in the audience and they enjoyed it as much, if not more. We have more experience of road trips, could clap along and got more of the jokes. Personally I enjoyed the casual use of te reo. There was a moment that (I won't spoil but) everyone gasped, enchanted.

My young companion had a simple review "I liked it too much."

Performances: 8-22 April (times vary)

Tickets: $15
