News from Square Eyes Film Foundation
A fourth Wellington concert has been announced for the Jim Henson Retrospectacle after huge demand for tickets this morning. The fourth show is confirmed for Saturday 28 April at 2pm.

The 21-day showcase of events paying tribute to Jim Henson, one of the world’s most creative, prolific and innovative film and puppetry artists, will take place in Wellington and will include a film fortnight series, workshops and master classes, with visiting puppeteers from Sesame Street and The Muppets.

The programme concludes with NZSO concerts featuring Oscar-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie – with appearances by some of Jim Henson’s much-loved characters.

Three concerts were scheduled during the final weekend with performances at the Michael Fowler Centre — on Friday 27 April and Saturday 28 April. The fourth concert is now on sale.

Tickets for all the Jim Henson Retrospectacle events are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
