The Magical World of Margaret Mahy
Director Euan Frizzell
Producer Shaun Bell
With Narrators: Ray Henwood, Ellie Smith
Five of our favourite Margaret Mahy stories, brought to life with animation in one magical screening:
The Three-Legged Cat
A tale of mistaken identity. Come and find out if Tom, Cyril and Mrs Gimble’s wishes come true.
The Great White Man-Eating Shark
Norvin is a great actor, but he is rather plain. In fact, he looks very like a shark. See what happens when he hatches a cunning plan at Caramel Cove.
The Witch in the Cherry Tree
An hilarious and mouth watering story of a witch who couldn’t resist the smell of baking.
Lizzie Firkin’s house is a mess and she is far too busy to tidy up. When she sends for Robin Puckertucker, the Wonder Housekeeper, there is quite a surprise for them both.
The Boy with Two Shadows
The story of a boy who minds a witch’s shadow – it’s more complicated that you’d think!
