Tim Bray Shows – HASCA Coordinator

Dear HASCA members and homeschooling friends,

Is anyone willing to coordinate bookings this year to the wonderful Tim Bray Productions at The Pumphouse Theatre in Takapuna?

Tim Bray’s 2018 shows are detailed below: Pipi Longstocking (term one), The Great White Man Eating Shark & Other Stories (term two), Badjelly the Witch (term three), and The Santa Claus Show ’18 (term four).

HASCA has had a coordinator manage show bookings for many, many years now and we’d like to continue supporting Tim and his work; HASCA bookings qualify for ‘school group booking’ pricing. https://pumphouse.co.nz/whats-on/children/book-school-group/

Lin Li would like to step down from this role as she would like to look at booking Youth Theatre and Ballet for our members and community this year. Thanks Lin Li for the many years you’ve booked the Tim Bray shows for us – we are very grateful!

These shows are fantastic for children aged 3-10 years, although children much older, parents, & grandparents enjoy them greatly too!

If you’d be keen to look at taking on this role please contact hasca.nz@gmail.com and Lin li will answer any questions you may have and tell you more about the benefits!

Thanks so much.
