May Gibbs’ children's classic on stage
May Gibbs’ classic Snugglepot and Cuddlepie comes to the stage when a new Australian adaptation plays at Gardens Theatre from 19 – 23 July as part of a national tour following its 2015 Sydney Opera House premiere.
The Gumnut babies are on a mission to see a human – but only at a 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 characters come to life on stage as this new production introduces today’s children to the world of May Gibbs.
