Following a hit season in Auckland and Australia, the show Boxes returns to delight Wellington families this month. Elton is moving house and all his belongings are packed up in boxes. As he sets up home, the stage fills with furniture and objects created from cardboard boxes, all shapes and sizes. But something is amiss. His tea turns into coffee, his flowers disappear and he discovers someone has been sleeping in his bed. As he comes face-to-face with the mysterious Bernie, a witty tale of friendship unfolds as they discover it's much easier to enjoy a cup of tea together than argue over whose place setting is best. Directed by Peter Wilson, Boxes is brought to life by the talents of Australian-based puppeteers Annie Forbes and Tim Denton, with a toe- tapping score composed by Thomas Press. Creative producer Stephen Blackburn says the show is predominantly a visual experience full of magical moments. ''It provides ideal entertainment for families who are new to the English language and children with hearing impairments to enjoy this enchanting story.'' After seeing the show, children can drop in to the Capital E playground and have fun creating their own box-inspired masterpiece to take home. Book tickets for the opening show on July 16 and you could be one of 10 people receiving a Mystery Prize Box full of treats and entertainment for the kids. Boxes, July 16 - 30, McKenzie Theatre at Capital E, Civic Square, Wellington. Shows 11am and 1pm, Monday to Saturday. Opens July 16 at 2pm. Booking: Call 04 913 3740 or visit capitale.org.nz. Lively turn at a classic fairy tale Children can see how a little lie can turn into a big problem in Rumpelstiltskin, KidzStuff Theatre's show for the school holidays. Milly enters a talent quest to become a princess but fibs that she can turn straw into gold. Rumpelstiltskin comes to the rescue, but once Milly becomes a princess there is a price to pay. The play has been written by Rachel Henry, creator of the company's previous hits Cinderella and Thumbelina, and directed by Jane Waddell. Henry has adapted the well-known Brothers Grimm story and brought a new and lively slant to this old favourite. Waddell is thrilled to have cast Hadleigh Walker as Rumpelstiltskin. He plays alongside Kali Kopaeas Millie, Heather O'Carroll as Fiona Ferret and Paul Harrop as The King. As usual in KidzStuff productions, Rumpelstiltskin will include audience participation, lots of fun for the children as well as some jokes for the adults -- and a little cross- dressing. Original music has been composed by Rob Ormsby. Rumpelstiltskin, July 16 - 30, at 4 Moncrieff St, Mt Victoria, Wellington. Shows 11am and 1pm, Monday to Friday, 11am Saturdays. Tickets $10, $9 each for groups of 10-plus. Children under two are free. A $7 preview screening is on July 16. Bookings: 385 0292.
