FROM THE PROGRAM COORDINATOR
This is a great opportunity to introduce your students to a story that has been a favourite for generations of Australians. As relevant and funny today as it was in 1918, with its themes of teamwork, problem solving and friendship, this production will expose your students to a piece of Australian literary history. It promises to be just as beautiful as the book, with gorgeous puppets and scenic imagery taking us on an adventure with some classic, cheeky and cunning characters.
