The timeless charm of May Gibbs’ classic Snugglepot and Cuddlepie comes to life on stage with a new Australian adaptation playing at the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre on Thursday, August 25.
Children aged 5 to 10, and their adults, will be mesmerised by the story of the Gumnut babies who 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 much loved characters come to life on stage as this funny and charming new production introduces today’s children to the wonderful world of May Gibbs .
Whether it’s a first meeting for young audiences, or a trip down memory lane for grownups, this new contemporary adaptation will surprise and delight audiences of all ages.
