This was a thoroughly enjoyable show, with warm, welcoming, and very talented performers! As you might expect, yes, the performers do encourage people to go onstage, but it's done with minimal stress for the 'volunteers' and with significant warmth and patience from the professionals.

Great show! My husband was chosen as the Chief, which was very cool. The rest of us were chosen to get onstage to participate, which was fun. Just the right touch of music, humor, and education. I appreciated that it was only 30 minutes long....More

I’ve been to two Haka and Maori cultural performances. The theatre is small, but it gives a far more interactive performance as compared to others I’ve been. Best part - No one leaves the theatre without trying out the traditional Haka (for the men) and...More

This was part of our evening. The show starts with the Maori warrior greeting you and first it is a little scary specially when you are with young children but then it becomes an enjoyable experience. They take you through the traditional welcome and then...More

This show takes place in a small intimate theatre with excellent seating and acoustics. The performers are enthusiastic and real to the spirit of the Haka. Audience members can volunteer to join in simple dance movements, nothing complicated or difficult. Worth every penny for 45...More
