On the back of the recent worldwide viral event (80 million views in around a week) thanks to the Scottish Grannie reading the book Wonky Donkey, Craig Smith brings to Mt Eden, Auckland for one day only his fully interactive children's holiday show.

Armed with his guitar, a number of puppets and costumes as well as a flash drive. Craig is able to put on a forty five minute fully interactive show along with a ten to fifteen minute question and answer session. The flash drive contains pdf files of all his songs in a book format so the whole area can follow along through his projection system. See Kaha the Kea come to life along with the cheeky monkey from his release ‘Eating’.

Ideal for children 2 years and up (pre school and primary school aged). Craig will be available to sign all his books, CD's & T shirts at these shows which are available for purchase. He also has photos and signs any previously bought materials afterward.

Doors open at 9.30 am limited cash sales available on the day Adult & Child $20 and Additional Child $10 (limit of three children per Adult). Pre sale tickets cheaper if bought previously on Eventfinda.

Seating available for Adults while children are encouraged to gather around on the floor around the stage for the show. Plenty of interaction and activity including a sneak preview of the upcoming 2019 new wonky donkey tale. Suitable for all pre school and primary aged children.
