“A great night, really well done”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

I had been to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds before but not at night. The show was terrific and well worth going back. The cast were locals and while all the players were great, the two young girls (aged 11 and 14) were amazing.

The script was tight and informative with both sides of the story being put in a most entertaining way.

“Best learning experience about Maori culture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

Performers were genuinely enthused with their work, and open to visitors' questions. The night-time experience of re-enacting a visit to a Maori community was very moving.

“Good, but a bit expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

I thought the show was informative and very good in a lot of parts.

However, there were times when some members of the cast didn't seem to know their words or the dances and it felt rather amateur which would be fine if it didn't cost so much.
