An Outdoor Theatrical Experience
In Association with The Eaton Gorge Theatre Company
ADAPTED FROM the book Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie BY MAY GIBBS
by arrangement with The Northcott Society and Cerebral Palsy Alliance
May Gibbs’ quintessentially Australian classics have fascinated and delighted generations of children and families, introducing them to the wonder and magic of the Australian bush. In this new outdoor adaptation, the iconic Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie come to life for contemporary audiences.
The Gumnut Babies are on a mission to see a human – but only from a distance! On their journey to the big city, they meet friends and foes including Mrs. Kookaburra, Mrs. Fantail, Mr. Lizard, Mr. Frog, Mrs. Snake, and, of course, Little Ragged Blossom.
Can Snugglepot lead the way? Can Cuddlepie hold his nerve? Can they avoid falling victim to the Big Bad Banksia Man?
These beloved characters come to life in the Australian Botanic Garden in an outdoor production of this funny and enchanting performance that introduces today’s children to the wonderful world of May Gibbs.
