Experience the magical wonder of puppetry at the cutest little show in Aotearoa! 


Join Peter and his Nanna as they build a nesting box for ruru. How long must Peter wait to discover who will eventually come and nest in his box of birds? Will it be pÄ«wakawaka, kereru or tui?


Made especially for children aged 3 to 6 years and their caregivers, this gorgeous puppet show includes live music and interactive songs by award-winning theatre company Birdlife Productions.


Box of Birds teaches children about our precious native birds, filling their hearts and minds with wonderment and inspiring them to look up into the trees! 


“This is truly a New Zealand show for New Zealand children and all those young at heart.” - Theatreview
