Wombat Stew - The Musical!
On August 6, catch Wombat Stew – The Musical! At the Arts Theatre, The Arts Centre Gold Coast.
From Garry Ginivan Attractions, Australia’s leading producer of musical theatre for children and following the highly acclaimed national tour of Possum Magic in 2013 comes another tour of a highly acclaimed Aussie musical for families and kids.
First published in 1984, Wombat Stew is a modern day phenomenon in children’s literature and has sold more than 400,000 copies Australia wide. Written by Marcia K Vaughan, with illustrations by Pamela Lofts, the simple story of a dingo who catches a wombat and decides to make wombat stew, has been cleverly developed into a 'true-blue-dinky-di-big-Aussie-musical' complete with blobs of mud, very fine feathers, creepy crawlies, flies,gumnuts and a big bubbling billy can!
This new Australian musical has been adapted for the stage by the highly acclaimed team of Gary Young (writer/director) and Paul Keelen (original score). Gary and Paul are highly skilled professionals and have the distinct honour of winning the highly prestigious Pratt Prize for Musical Theatre, not once but twice, including the inaugural prize in 2002 for their musical Sideshow Alley.
With a cast of six multi-talented performers, Wombat Stew is a 'mouth-watering' combination of story-telling, mime, music, dance and puppetry, which is bound to be the highlight of children’s theatre for 2014 and well into the future.
So…don’t get yourself in a stew! Get yourself into a theatre…right near you!
