Join us on an Aotearoa musical adventure as 10 year old Mata journeys to a mysterious maunga to seek an ancient kōauau. Being guided by ngā manu and waiata, Mata faces dangerous challenges and encounters quirky and charming characters who help him on his way. In order to find the kōauau Mata must sing the best waiata there has ever been. This Mysterious Musical Maunga has never been rocked so much.

Jamie was the recipient of the Bruce Mason Playwriting award in 2013 and is a Producer/Director of Wellington based production company, Tikapa Productions.

“Jamie McCaskill is a One Man talented band and an exceptionally gifted storyteller “
