Travel back to Velcro City, the only place in New Zealand to have proudly refused to lock down. Filled with cheerful people who love their jobs at the local disposable-coffee-cup factory, this seaside oasis has so much to do you'll barely notice the threat of the rising ocean! Brought to life by Eli Matthewson and Hamish Parkinson, with costumes and set made from the power of velcro and felt-tip pens, this is a theatre experience like no other.
