TAPAC is excited to announce the return of ‘Dexter’. After a successful season of Dexter’s Deep Sea Discovery, which won the 2015 Playmarket Award. Critically acclaimed writers Jess Sayer and Darlene Mohekey are bringing you a new adventure for the school holidays!

"A fun script with clever lyrics. Great story set up with intriguing twists and turns."

About Dexter's Amazing African Adventure:
Dexter loves animals. And he loves visiting the zoo. In fact, sometimes he wishes he could live there. So when a bratty baboon convinces him to swap places for the night, Dexter doesn’t need to think twice. But his wild night out isn’t quite what he bargained for.

Dexter soon learns that something bad is happening in Africa. Something really bad. Animals are being hunted by a dangerous poacher and if no one helps, pretty soon there will be no animals left. Dexter knows that he must do everything he can to stop this poacher in his tracks!

With the help of his furry friends, Dexter is magically transported to the plains of Africa, on a super silly safari that will test every ounce of his courage.

Don’t miss this crazy show full of Hip-Hop Hippos, Elegant Elephants and Flaptastic Flamingos! Enjoy non-stop, hilarious Pantomime fun for the whole family these July school holidays! Will Dexter save the animals?

Reviews for Dexter's Deep Sea Discovery 2015:

"The hip soundtrack, surprisingly stellar acting and the feel-good story running through the centre make Dexter’s Deep Sea Discovery not only a fun watch but yet another discovery of TAPAC’s awesome talent and charisma. These shows always end on a high and leave audience members buzzing as they walk to their cars." - Nicholas Brookland, Keeping Up With NZ.

"The show is for all ages, containing fun interaction for kids, modern jokes for teens/tweens, and some jokes that crack up the adults." - Loki Smythe, Theatre Review.
