Monkey Baa Theatre presents a witty, musical, adaptation of the much-loved children’s book, Pete the Sheep by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.
Actor Nat Job, who plays the eponymous Pete, says the production is not just for kids but is perfect for adults too.
“Everyone will get a kick out of it, it’s very tongue in cheek, it has jokes for the kids and heaps of jokes blatantly for the adults,” he says.
With only four actors playing an assortment of characters, both human and animal, the unique production fantastically challenges the audience’s imagination.
“It relies on us as actors to morph our physicality, it’s a wonderful challenge for us and it is so much fun for the audience to see four grown men throwing themselves around the stage,” he says.
“A child wrote to us that they were so excited to see a show with four grown men and three real dogs, he didn’t realise we were the dogs!”
With funny and expressive characters and songs, this original musical hit promises to entertain the whole family.
“It’s an amazing show, it’s quite genius in the way it’s been written,” says Job. (SOC)
