May Gibbs’ beloved icon Australian tales of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie are being brought to life in a new stage show for children aged 5 – 10 years.

Watch the Channel 10 report on the launch of the new Snugglepot & Cuddlepie stage show.

This funny, enchanting, production will be performed at theatres across Sydney from 27 June – 12 July before embarking on a national tour in 2016.

This contemporary adaptation follows the famous Gumnut babies on their mission to see a human – but only in the 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.

Can Snugglepot lead the way? Can Cuddlepie hold his nerve? Can they avoid falling victim to the Big Bad Banksia Man.

May Gibbs bequeathed the copyright from the designs of her much-loved bush characters, the Gumnut Babies and Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, to Cerebral Palsy Alliance and Northcott. The royalties this generates for Cerebral Palsy Alliance allow us to provide ongoing support to thousands of children and families living with cerebral palsy.
