In just one month, from June 11-12, Shaun the Shearer and Pete the Sheep invite Geelong families to join their list of woolly clients at Costa Hall for children’s musical comedy, Pete the Sheep, presented by Monkey Baa Theatre Company.

Adapted from the picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, Pete the Sheep is a lively and mischievous award-winning musical for young audiences and their adults.

Part of Geelong Arts Centre, Love Central Geelong Family Magic 2021 program, we are thrilled to have Geelong-bred actor, Andrew James, returning to town for these exciting performances in the role of Ratso.

Geelong Arts Centre’s Love Central Geelong Family Magic program returns in 2021 with a range of fantastic family-friendly productions from April to September.

For many children in the G21 region, the Family Magic program provides their first theatrical experience, and Geelong Arts Centre takes great pride in helping families spark a love for the arts that introduces their little ones to a world of limitless possibilities.

Fun for the whole family is back, with an enticing variety of musical workshops, physical theatre and circus, literary favourites coming to life, and for the very first time, an immersive performance specially designed for children with a broad range of access needs.

With five fantastically eclectic shows remaining, the program is designed to captivate, inspire and entertain children under 12, as well as their parents, siblings, grandparents and carers.

Monkey Baa’s award-winning musical returns!

Imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep, this hilarious musical comedy explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual whilst being part of the flock.

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!

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 honoring your own spirit and strength, whilst working with the flock.
