Monkey Baa Theatre Company. Darling Quarter Theatre. March 29 – April 24, 2014, then touring.
Monkey Baa (whose previous adaptations of our books include I Am Jack and Hitler’s Daughter) have done it again, this time turning our 32-page picture book into a fabulous 50-minute musical. The four actors in the picture above represent the entire cast and are absolutely brilliant as they effortlessly switch between roles as shearers, sheep and dogs.
The show’s primary target audience is children aged 4-9, but I can assure you this wonderful performance represents enormous fun for the entire family. There’s a great mix of humour, music, dancing and, of course, a brilliant storyline. And the best part is the show will be touring nationally.
