SNUGGLEPOT and CUDDLEPIE - Live on Stage
adapted from the book by May Gibbs
adapted by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry
from a series of books by May Gibbs
by arrangement with The Northcott Society and Cerebral Palsy Alliance
A classic Australian tale told with a modern sensibility and is full of action and humour.
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 adaptation for children aged 5–10 and their families, these iconic tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie come alive 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.
