Serena the Space Queen has come to planet Earth to share her knowledge about the solar system and the life beyond. You will enjoy her high energy show and especially meeting her co-pilot Mr. Sparkles (seen in photo) a live guinea-pig. She workshops with the children, one of her favourite Maori legends about a group of stars in the Taurus constellation called 'Matariki' (little eyes). Stars hint at the immensity of our universe and suggest the vastness of time. The next time you stare into the night sky, consider infinity, consider time and consider life. Serena's show is a blend of magic, singing, fun, live animals, audience interaction and wonderful facts about the planets of our solar system.This show is educational as well as entertaining!

We loved the interactive nature of the show and the way our senior children were invited to perform. They had a fabulous time and our audience enjoyed this immensely. We booked the show as part of our Pentecost celebrations and 'The Space Queen' was a lively culmination of a great day.
Robyn Lee - St Ignatius School
The children retained most of the information- names of planets and stars. Enabled them to understand the galaxy. Wonderfully interactive. Children chosen were thrilled. Including many yr 6 students which kept them involved. Visuals (balloons) effective. Repetition great. Singing fun. Incorporation of science cleverly done. Vocabulary expanded.
St. Pauls School
Pitched at just the right level. Content great as we were at the end of our study topic. They really loved the magic tricks, songs, backdrop, costumes, story and especially Gloria the guinea pig. So the best bits were the tricks and Gloria from my class's reflection. They were so pleased you mentioned the stars as they had been finding out about them . And the planet sequence as they were familiar with it. Great input as we were after some narratives after their science work and so it fitted the bill and also gave them some more ideas . Thankyou
Mairangi Bay School
Children remained engaged throughout the show. Interactive.The information at the right level. They enjoyed the planet song. Time for show was just right. Kids loved the magic. Our American visitors wanted to take you home. They couldn't believe our children had such a fabulous opportunity to learn.
