This exquisite new stage adaptation will spark the imagination and sense of adventure in young children as they experience the timeless charm of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.


The Gumnut babies 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, charming and contemporary production introduces today’s children to the wonderful world of May Gibbs.

Members who book for the 2pm show on Thursday 22 September are invited to meet some of the cast after the show.
