Pete the Sheep

A Monkey Baa Theatre Company production
Pete the Sheep

Adapted for the stage by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge & Tim McGarry
Based on the book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley

Adapted by Monkey Baa in 2014 from the picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, with foot-tapping music and lyrics by Phil Scott and comedic direction by Jonathan Biggins, Pete the Sheep is a lively and mischievous award-winning musical for young audiences and their adults.

Shaun isn’t like the other Shearers in Shaggy Gully… he’d rather be styling than shearing and instead of ‘sheep-dog’, he has a ‘sheep-sheep’ named Pete. After being rejected by the shearers and their dogs, Shaun and Pete set up their own Shearing Salon in town and before long word is out and they are inundated with woolly clients and maybe a Ringer or two!

This hilarious show, imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual and will be a lasting tribute to honoring your own spirit and strength, whilst working with the flock.

Presented by Arts Margaret River with support from Margaret River HEART

“A truly Aussie tale–delightful, funny, iconic, warm and hilariously Ocker, from the lingo to the names to the shearers’ bluesinglets…” – Kids Book Review, 2011

FRIDAY MATINEE TICKETS: $20 adults, $12 youth (These shows will be attended by school groups, limited general admission available)

Valentine – Puppet Show

Help Valentine as she searches for her heart

Valentine is a clown and her best friend is her heart. She loves to spend time with her Grandpa, but Grandpa’s heart is running out of time, and there is nothing Valentine can do about it. Valentine is determined to be strong, not to fall apart, but in doing so she loses her heart. With a big empty world ahead of her, the audience helps Valentine on a journey to search for her heart, as she learns to embrace her emotions – even the painful ones.

Like a story book that comes to life before your eyes, Valentine combines shadow puppetry, animation and physical theatre to create a visually spectacular show. Designed for families and children Valentine is an honest, playful, and interactive show about what it means to love and lose somebody.

Valentine was developed with support from Spare Parts Puppet Theatre as part of their FirstHand puppetry training program.

“Honest, intimate and every bit heartwarming” – Rotunda Media

Tickets: $10 Youth, $15 Adults, $12 Members, $40 Family (2Y + 2A)
