Nelson / Tasman

Hi there!

We are a group of Nelson-based creative cats who are touring our original piece of theatre, 'The Girl who Climbed a Mountain and Saved the World' to the Dunedin and NZ Fringes this year. Your support for this process would mean the world to us. Our costs include transportation to Dunedin and Wellington, accommodation and all the other bits and bobs that go with taking words from the page and presenting them in a creative way!

This is a play for voices. It tells the stories of Kira, a young girl born under Mount Taranaki; Hannah, a green-gumbooted dairy farmer from Riuwaka; and mustachioed Tom, a Kiwi on a spiritual sojourn in India. Find out more at

The script was created through a process of community story-sharing, dramaturgy and a public feedback session. So far around 70 people have added their voices to the creation of this play!

Your donation towards our creativity is very much appreciated. Thank you for your generosity and community-minded spirit!

Love from,

Lisa, Kath, Dan, Sam, Bob, Ali and Tanya

Use of funds

FUNDS WILL HELP US WITH: Flights to Dunedin for our musician, flights to Wellington for the actors, performer and director fees, advertising materials, venue fees, fringe fees and more!

Hi all,

This Sunday/ Monday just gone we toured our show to the Dunedin Fringe Festival. What a beautiful event, run by a wonderful team of people. The show was received very well (read the review here: and we head to Wellington next week! If you know of any Wellingtonians who might be keen to come along then send them to the Scruffy Bunny Theatre on Courtney Street at 6.30pm on the 22nd, 23rd or 24th of March! And if you know of anyone who loves donating to art as much as you do then please send them our details. :)
