    The colourful world of May Gibbs’ Snugglepot and Cuddlepie springs to life on stage for children aged 5-10 (and their adults) when a new action-packed Australian adaptation plays at GPAC in the next school holidays.

    Join everyone’s favourite Gumnuts as they set out 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.

    Critics and audiences alike are raving: “an engaging romp, bringing the magical bush tale to life for another generation…skilfully done…imaginative” - Sydney Morning Herald

    This new contemporary adaptation will surprise and delight audiences of all ages when it comes to GPAC as part of the Love Central Geelong Family Magic Program. There will be two performances only, on Thursday September 29 at 12 and 2.30pm.
