The unexpected friendship between a noisy robot and a cuddly buddy called Mort will be brought to life on stage when Windmill Theatre Company’s highly imaginative award-winning family show Beep is presented at Arts Centre Melbourne from 9 – 13 July 2019. The heart-warming tale, performed during the winter school holidays, is the perfect first theatre experience for the youngest members of the family and suitable for children aged 2 – 7 years.
The playful and highly interactive production from the makers of Grug and Grug and the Rainbow, tells a slightly sideways tale through puppetry, whimsical staging and lots of laughs about finding where you fit and learning to mix it up a little. Featuring an original story by writer Katherine Fyffe, and starring irresistibly adorable puppets in an enchanting landscape created by AACTA Award-winning designer Jonathon Oxlade, Beep is uniquely designed to surprise and delight the youngest theatre goers.
Beep features Windmill’s trademark inventive design, gentle storytelling, music and puppetry in a quirky and fun tale about finding one’s place in the world. In Mort’s village everything has its place, every day is the same and everyone likes it that way. Until one morning: crash, boom, bang – down comes Beep, a clattery, clanky robot girl from a strange world. He wants to know who is this noisy bucket of bolts, and how will she find her way back home?
July 9 – 13
