The new net goes fishing.
A warm hearted family show about Rima - a young village boy who dreams of travel and adventure, but is duty bound to catch fish for his village every day instead.
When Rima’s magic fishing rod is stolen by a jealous neighbour, he decides he must trek through forests and over oceans to recover his stolen property and save his village from going hungry.
Enlisting the help of all sorts of interesting characters along the way, Rima (who only speaks Maori) is also assisted by a friendly English speaking narrator who translates everything for the audience.
An educational, interactive and very humorous show for the whole family Ka Hao Te Rangatahi takes a unique approach to teaching the Maori language by encouraging children to guide the action on stage with their words.
