This new adaptation of May Gibbs’ quintessentially Australian classic brings these iconic tales to life on stage for contemporary audiences.
The Gumnut babies are on a mission to see a human – but only in the distance! On their journey to the big city they meet friends and foes including Professor Kookaburra, Mrs Fantail, Mr Lizard, Mr Frog, Mrs Snake, Mr Possum 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 on stage as this funny, enchanting production introduces today’s children to the wonderful world of May Gibbs.
