Pete the Sheep is coming to Gympie

On Friday 20 August, the Monkey Baa Theatre Company is bringing their show Pete the Sheep to The Pavilion.

The production is based on the quirky and classic Australian picture book written by Jackie French and illustrated by Bruce Whatley. Monkey Baa’s hilarious musical comedy is imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep that explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual.

With music and lyrics created by Phil Scott and the comedic imagination of Jonathan Biggins as director (both of Wharf Revue fame), audiences will be delighted by foot-tapping tunes and witty storytelling.

Two sessions of this award winning show will be playing at The Pavilion at the family friendly times of 12.30pm and 5.30pm.

Pete the Sheep is part of Gympie Regional Council’s RESET program, supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
