Frommers had rated this 3 * and the cost was $65 per person. We were expecting a great show with cast members showing the Maori tatoos and costumes as shown in the Frommer's book. The cast consisted of mainly high school age people and none of them had the traditional tattooing. A couple of the small cast looked uncomfortable performing and didn't even know the words or steps to some of the songs. We can't believe they charged $65 for this show! The main character was sick and so another one read his script using a notebook. It was very unprofessional. Since we had spent so much money on it we didn't attend another Maori show in New Zealand. It was the only disappointment of our New Zealand adventure. Please check into a show before you purchase tickets, maybe Rotorua ? This one was a total rip-off.
