Hamiltonâ€™s very own Fringe Festival is spreading its wings and sharing some of the fun with the wider Waikato region.
Raglan will see Master Puppeteer Norbert Hausbergâ€™s hand-carved marionettes come alive with smart-alec-ery and tomfoolery in a modern rendition of the classic tale of Rumpelstiltskin. Lots of laughs for adults and children alike. Catch him at the Old School Arts Centre on Fri 4th March at 7pm. $8 adults, $10 kids, $30 group of 4.
A simply amazing show that has been to every continent this is family entertainment at its best. In mere moments you are transfixed and you forget that someone operates these impressively carved marionettes. This classic tale of Rumpelstiltskin is well known but gets an astonishing contemporary slant. Fast interaction of the marionettes and skilled projection of different voices makes this a must see.
The Hamilton Fringe runs from the 3rd-13th March, full lineup can be seen at www.hamiltonfringe.co.nz or find a programme in Raglan town.
