Children’s play Prince Seth and the Princess returns to Centrepoint Theatre these school holidays for a time travel adventure.
Imagination has been a key ingredient in the success of children’s play Prince Seth and the Princess.
Carla Haronga’s (formerly Crofts) concept was a Feilding school holiday triumph for Te Puanga Whakaari Theatre Productions in 2013, and its sequel, Prince Seth and the Princess – Pirate Adventure!, enjoyed a great reception at Centrepoint Theatre last year.
So it seemed only natural to maintain the momentum by bringing a new instalment of the show to Centrepoint these school hols.
Actors Jacob Wilson and Kristi Atkins return as Seth and Ricky and are joined by Helena Pawson as Avery in what literally proves to be a race against time.
Like most kids at some time or other during these July holidays, Seth, Ricky and Avery find themselves at something of a loose end. If your kids are at a loose end, and Seth, Ricky and Avery are at a loose end, why not try tying your holiday loose ends to their loose end and get tied together for an hour of fun.
Aided and abetted by playful imaginations – their own and as well as the audience’s, the three set out on a timetravelling adventure. Anything involving dinosaurs, robots and jungle creatures is likely.
‘‘ Time Travel is a brand new adventure for Seth and Ricky with lots of twists and turns that the audience must help them navigate,’’ Carla says.
The co-artistic director of Te Puanga Whakaari is also head of drama at Feilding High School. ‘‘Palmy fell in love with these two characters in 2014 and, with the addition of a new character, Avery, this show is set to be their freshest, most exciting yet.’’
Prince Seth and the Princess – Time Travel directed by Carla and Reihana Haronga and designed by Holly Norris is at Centrepoint Theatre from next week, July 8-12 with two sessions daily 11am and 2pm.
Bookings at Centrepoint’s box office 280 Church St, on 354 5740 or online at centrepoint.co.nz.
Many happy returns as Helena Pawson, Jacob Wilson and Kristi Atkins are all wound up in Prince Seth and the Princess – Time Travel, the second sequel of the popular school holiday entertainment.
