The Ice Cream Is Melting!


Children and families delight in this silly, fun and sweet story told through the wonders of circus.

Antarctic enthusiast Bonnie and younger sibling Nikau have been promised a special treat – everyone’s favourite – ice cream! But, it’s a hot day and on the way back from the shops, the unspeakable occurs: the ice cream begins to melt… 


Their journey becomes an epic survival adventure where important issues around environmental change transform into a double scoop of delight. This loveable whānau-friendly show is sprinkled with aerial acrobatics, contortion and ice cream juggling.

Presented thanks to Hobbiton
