Adapted by Monkey Baa in 2014 from the picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, with foot-tapping music and lyrics by Phil Scott and comedic direction by Jonathan Biggins, Pete the Sheep is a lively and mischievous award-winning musical for young audiences and their adults.
Shaun isn't like the other Shearers in Shaggy Gully... he'd rather be styling than shearing and instead of 'sheep-dog', he has a 'sheep-sheep' named Pete.
After being rejected by the shearers and their dogs, Shaun and Pete set up their own Shearing Salon in town and before long word is out and they are inundated with woolly clients and maybe a Ringer or two!
I know an adult that saw the show in 2014, who loved it so much that he is coming again and bringing his dad along too... come along as this is the only kids show that we have touring this year.Stephanie Kreutzer, Arts Margaret River
This hilarious show, imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual and will be a lasting tribute to honouring your own spirit and strength, whilst working with the flock.
Presented by Arts Margaret River with support from the Margaret River HEART, Pete the Sheep comes to Margaret River for three shows - Thursday 20 May 6.30pm, Friday 21 May 10am and 12.30pm.
Stephanie Kreutzer, Marketing Manager at Arts Margaret River said that the matinee shows were being attended by students from local schools with tickets also available to the general public.
"It's great that some of the local schools are attending the show and that we were able to offer them free workshops conducted by Monkey Baa as an added bonus.
"We presented Pete the Sheep at the Cultural Centre back in 2014 and everyone loved it, so it's great to be able to bring it back again.
"I know an adult that saw the show in 2014, who loved it so much that he is coming again and bringing his dad along too. It's a hilarious, fun show - check out the trailer on our website and come along as this is the only kids show that we have touring this year."
