Mr Moon from ‘What Now’, a popular New Zealand children’s TV series, visits van Asch Deaf Education Centre (van Asch College as it was called then) to teach the students street theatre skills, in preparation for their own live performance.

We see the students continue to refine their skills, even when not at practice with Mr Moon.

As part of the preparation, the group visits Wellington to watch a performance at the New Zealand Festival by the Montreal Street Theatre group, in March 1988.
