New Zealand stories not to be forgotten for children and their families.
The White Tree has been there as long as anyone can remember. It is a place where creatures make their homes, the birds in nests hidden amongst the leaves, or in the hollows where the roots dive deep into the earth. It is a place where children come to play and climb amidst its branches.
It is in this place that the White Tree remembers the story of the precious huia, the little yellow-eyed hoiho and the lumbering great green kakapo. It remembers times of flood and times of fire. Stories of sadness, stories of hope.
But now the White Tree is in danger from the greatest threat of all. Who can help save the White Tree?
The White Tree is a beautiful piece of theatre created by Little Dog Barking for the whole family.
Age group: Most suitable for children 6–12 years old
