Snugglepot and Cuddlepie

The gorgeous tale of Gumnut babies, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, will be told at the Burnie Arts & Function Centre on Thursday 1 September at 12:00pm and 6:00pm.

This exquisite new stage adaptation will spark the imagination and sense of adventure for 5 to 10 year olds, and their families.

The Gumnut babies are on a mission to see a human, but only from a 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. 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.

Thomas Pidd, who plays Cuddlepie, grew up in Ulverstone and recently toured Tasmania with Terrapin.

The 6:00pm screening is an ‘Access Friendly’ performance, suitable for children with special needs and their families. ‘Access Friendly’ means that the doors will be open during the performance, there is a breakout space for children if needed, and there will be a monitor set up in the foyer to watch the show if it becomes too overwhelming for children in the theatre.

The 12.00 pm show has special discounts for school group bookings – only available through the Box Office.  Contact the Box Office on 6430 5850 for more information.
