1 Time-warp time

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

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.
