When: Sat 1st April 2017
Where: The Art House – 19/21 Margaret Street, Wyong
Millions of young people around the world have adored the multi award-winning picture book, Diary of a Wombat. Now finally this iconic work by Australian Children’s Laureate (2014/15), Jackie French and Bruce Whatley comes to the stage.
Meet Mothball, the naughtiest wombat in Australia. Bored with her daily routine, Mothball goes in search of shelter and food, creating chaos in the lives of the humans around her.
Doormats, bins and washing lines are no match for this mischievous marsupial. Between a packed schedule of scratching, sleeping and eating Mothball discovers that with a bit of persistence, humans are quite easily trained!
Monkey Baa and a team of revered artists including Puppetry and Movement Director Alice Osborne (War Horse2012/13), Designer Imogen Ross (Hitler’s Daughter) and accomplished composer/cellist, Oonagh Sherrard use the magic of puppetry and live music to bring this delightful story for ages 3+ to the stage.
Since 1997, Monkey Baa Theatre Company has been creating inspiring, award-winning theatre for young people, touring from bush to coast and across the seas. Our Creative Directors, Eva Di Cesare, Sandie Eldridge and Tim McGarry, have adapted over 15 classic Australian stories for the stage including The Peasant Prince, Pete the Sheep, The Bugalugs Bum Thief, Hitler’s Daughter, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie and The Unknown Soldier.
