Phone a Friend

Phone A Friend is a hilarious mad mash-up of WALL-E, E.T with a smattering of 3G and will feature the craziest costume ever unleashed on New Zealand schools since the infamous Bionic Bunny from 2010’s Old McDonald Had A Farm! As always audience interaction will be a must and two versions will be rehearsed to make sure all age ranges are thoroughly engaged and entertained.

A fantastic foundation for children who aren’t yet totally caught up in our increasingly technology crazed world, the play acts as a great platform for further classroom discussion on technology. Additionally, it’s a captivating and fun story that promises to have every primary age group laughing (including the teachers!)

Performed in 2012 by Shayne Forrest, Aimee Forrest and Rutene Spooner

The play was just delightful. Feedback from staff and pupils alike was that it was fantastic. We enjoyed the interactive nature of the play and the adults enjoyed the more subtle elements of the show. The 3 actors were extremely talented, enthusiastic and a credit to the Playhouse.

We thoroughly enjoy your shows. As a full primary (5-12 yr olds) it is important that all the students are connected with, and you can do this so well. The shows are relevant and pertinent to the kids. We love your mix of music and dance, and the way you involve the kids with this – getting them up and participating. I looked at the faces of those 12 year olds and they were all grinning! Clever use of props too! Such a positive theatrical experience for the kids!
