“The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat…”
Big Monkey Theatre, in conjuncton with the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, will be presenting “The Nautical Adventures of the Owl & the Pussycat” as part of TMAG’s Family Days during ‘The Tempest’ exhibition.
Based on Edward Lear’s famous poem, Les Winspear has written and directed this light-hearted, whimsical play as a journey in song and fun for the young-at-heart.
Puss has built herself a sturdy vessel, but before she can equip it properly she and Owl are cast adrift by the hapless Duck. With no rudder, no anchor and no idea where they’ll end up the two friends are off on an unexpected adventure. Along the way they’re helped by a truffle-hunting Pig and caught up in the kitchen catastrophes of a troubled Turkey.
Sail with these loveable characters to the land where the Bong-Trees grow and laugh with them as they make new friends, solve serious problems and discover there’s more to the big wide world than they ever dreamed.
‘The Owl & the Pussycat’ will be appearing on the following days and times, in Prospero’s Library (Central Gallery):
Sunday 31st July at 11:30am, 1:00pm and 2:15pm
Sunday 28th August at 11:30am, 1:00pm and 2:15pm
Sunday 30th October at 11:30am, 1:00pm and 2:15pm
This is a free event, so come along and join in the nautical adventure with Owl and Puss!
