Wellington Maori theatre company Taki Rua is looking for talent for its new te reo Maori season.

Waatea News reports the company is casting Matiu Te Huki's play Te Kumara Reka for a three month tour through New Zealand's heartland.

Spokesperson Kerryn Jones says this month's auditions in Auckland and Wellington will seek rangatahi fluent in te reo, as many of the performances will be in Maori language settings.

Three actors and a tour manager/driver are sought.
