The much-loved Glow Show is back!  It’s the Wonderland Glow Show - a fabulously Kiwified version of Alice in Wonderland.

The show’s masterfully crafted characters and intriguing scenery will transport its audiences into a weird and wonderful world of dancing flamingos, an eight-metre caterpillar and giant flowers.

Through its bilingual storytelling, it shows reading as a true superpower, a power every kid has inside!

The Glow Show educates and entertains, by promoting literacy and Te Reo Māori and celebrating the exquisite art of ultraviolet puppetry.
