Grug and the Rainbow

Grug and The RainbowGrug is back with more stories based on the much-loved picture book character created by Ted Prior at Arts Centre Melbourne for a limited season until 5 July 2015.

Beginning his life as the grassy top of a Burrawang tree, Grug is fascinated by the world around him and never short of an adventure. Now he’s back by popular demand! Embarking on his own epic journey to find a rainbow, it always seems just beyond his grasp but Grug is full of determination and his adventures are always full of surprises.

Featuring exquisite puppetry and more of the gentle storytelling that has delighted audiences around the world, this brand new show has been especially created for the next generation of our littlest theatregoers (and those who just love Grug).

Just like Grug, you can prove your determination by building your very own rainbow. Come before or stay after for some free foyer fun! A special ‘Access-friendly’ performance will also takes place on Friday 3 July at 10.00am.

Director: Sam Haren  Performers: Jude Henshall, Nathan O’Keefe & Ellen Steele  Designer: Jonathon Oxlade  Composer: DJ TR!P
