Big Monkey Newsletter: October 2012

Oh boy, it’s been over a year since our last newsletter!

Big Monkey has been having too much fun to write any news. So there’s lots to announce!

Treasure Island

Treasure Island

Rehearsals start NEXT WEEK for Big Monkey’s next show in the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. This summer we will be performing perfectly piratically in Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stephenson’s classic tale which has been adapted by Les Winspear.

Starring: Craig Wood, Will Pridmore, Emily Coatman, Emesha Rudolf, and Andrew Casey as Long John Silver.

The search is on, across the rolling seas, for Treasure Island. Jemma Hawkins has Captain Flint’s treasure map, but Long John Silver and his band of bumbling pirates want it too, and they’ll stop at nothing to get it.

A swashbuckling adventure of madness and mayhem, spiced with songs and laced with laughs, this original adaptation of a classic tale has something for everyone and is not-to-be-missed entertainment for your whole family in January 2013!

Over 7000 kids are already booked in to see Treasure Island with their school from 22nd November to 14th December 2012.

Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant

Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant

Little Monkeys are invited to dress up as pirates and join the Treasure Island cast in the Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant on Saturday 17th November 2012. 

Myer Hobart Christmas PageantThis will be the third year that Little Monkeys have participated in the Christmas Pageant and great fun has been had by everyone in past years.

In 2010, there were Toads in little red cars driving dangerously around the parade route.

In 2011, Greek warriors marched along with swords at the ready.

This year we hope to have many new additions to Long John Silver’s bumbling crew!

Make sure you don’t miss out.

Sign up now by emailing Kiah and Michelle at [email protected].

Clarence Seafarers Festival

Treasure Island

Jemma Hawkins and some of Long John Silver’s piratical crew will be appearing at the Clarence Seafarers Festival from 10am until 4pm on Sunday 28th October 2012.

Jemma and the crew are refusing to walk the plank and are sitting on the plank instead… in the DUNKING MACHINE!

Come along and see if your aim is good enough to make the pirates from Treasure Island take a surprise dip!
