Fun-Loving Pippi Longstocking On Stage For July School Holidays
The tales of fun-loving prankster Pippi Longstocking come to life on stage in July.
Auckland’s leading children’s theatre company, Tim Bray Productions presents Pippi Longstocking at The PumpHouse Theatre, Takapuna from 8-27 July 2013.
With her flaming red pigtails and topsy-turvy world of fun and hi-jinks living on her own in Villekulla Cottage, Pippi Longstocking has been an enduring favourite of children around the world.
Adapted by Tim Bray from the well-known Astrid Lindgren books, Pippi Longstocking blends together a number of Pippi stories in one fun-filled show as Pippi, with her friends Annika and Tommy, outsmarts the bullies, has fun with her monkey, Mr Nelson, and is reunited with her father, the Cannibal King.
Directed by Amanda Rees with original music by Christine White, Pippi Longstocking stars T-Ann Manora as Pippi with Josh Booth as Mr Nelson, Stephen Butterworth as Captain Longstocking, Josephine Stewart as Annika and Luke Wilson as Tommy.
Pippi Longstocking is the second in a programme of professional children’s theatre productions presented by Tim Bray Productions in 2013.
Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren and adapted by Tim Bray is at The PumpHouse, Takapuna, Auckland from Monday 8 July to Saturday 27 July.
