A Goblins Tale is a primary school show that has travelled Auckland Primary schools for nearly 700 years.  Created by Ben Crowder, Maxine Donnellan, Brett O' Gorman and Ebony Fleur Bott, this show is about fostering self-esteem in kids and giving them the tools to deal with bullying, unkindness and oppression. Using humour, music, magic, puppetry and special effects, A Goblins Tale captures imaginations, teaching serious messages through fun storytelling.

I thought the show was exciting, interesting and fun!
