After becoming the hottest ticket ever at the Auckland Arts Festival, New Zealand’s most acclaimed new musical is heading across the ditch. Like a Pacific Island version of Bran Nue Dae (with a fair dose of Hairspray thrown in for good measure!) this large-scale, hugely entertaining and pitch-perfect musical is a must see!
Arriving in New Zealand with her father, a young Samoan woman with big dreams and hopes for a brighter future is immediately set to work in a South Auckland textile factory; but each time the factory bell rings, she feels further away from both her home and her aspirations.
Hilarious and heartfelt, this vibrant, funk-fuelled musical weaves a romantic narrative and wry lyrics into a tribute to the courage of the Pacific peoples who migrated to Auckland during the 1970s. Featuring an original score, a live band, slick choreography, and a dazzling array of exuberant and soulful songs, The Factory is a clever and optimistic exploration of the migrant experience that will leave you beaming!
Recommended for ages 5+.
