About the Show

Ahoy me’ hearties! Margaret Mahy’s rollicking and funny pirate adventure, which makes for a brilliant family outing.

The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate tells the story of Sam, an ordinary man who wears an ordinary suit and who works in an ordinary office. But his mother is an extraordinary mother – she’s a pirate and yearns to see the sea again.

A wonderful and madcap adventure ensues as they travel to the sea, with much audience involvement. You and your children will adore this all-time favourite story by New Zealand’s literary treasure, Margaret Mahy.

Costume Parade (Gala and School Holiday Season only): Encourage your children to dress up as their favourite character from The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate for the onstage Costume Parade just prior to the start of the show.
