Larger than Life was Ngaruawahia’s third-best children’s novelty act back in the 70’s and 80’s. Now they’re all grown up and ready for a comeback.

Travel back in time to small-town Aotearoa and join three hupe nosed brothers, Te-Whakakotahitanga-o-Ngā-iwi-o-Te-Motu Boy-George Jackson, Te-Rua-Wairere-o-Ranginui-Kia-Papatuanuku Presley Jackson and Tuahangata Liberace Jackson, as they land the opportunity of a lifetime – opening for the legendary John Rowles in Wellington.

All they have to do is get there and not screw it up!

Come along as the boys take you on an adventure of epic proportions as they meet famous faces, Kiwi icons, wacky New Zealand characters and ultimately screw it all up.

From the makers of SolOthello and Hoki Mai Tama Mā, this nostalgic and hilarious play will transport you back to the golden days of Māori showbands and includes music from and inspired by Prince Tui Teka, the Topp Twins, Tim Finn, and of course John Rowles.
