The Bugalugs Bum Thief

MB_The Bugalugs Bum ThiefHold on to your bums! Monkey Baa’s most popular side-splitting production of The Bugalugs Bum Thief is back by popular demand at the Lend Lease Darling Quarter Theatre, promising a riot of a time for ages 4 to 99.

Based on the wildly popular book by Tim Winton, The Bugalugs Bum Thief tells the story of the town of Bugalugs where inhabitants wake up one morning to find their buttock missing, all 496 citizens of the town of Bugalugs are bumless!

After waking up to discover that his bum is missing, Skeeta Anderson with the help of his best mates Billy Marbles and Mick Misery, sets out to discover where all the bums have gone and to find the culprit of the crime. After much mayhem and madness Skeeta finally unravels the mystery and Bugalugs gets back to normal… well almost.

Everyone has claimed the wrong bum! This is where it gets, well, interesting! Embarrassment and pride get in the way of everyone taking their original bums back, so Skeeta organises as swapmeet in the local town hall and becomes the town hero as the kid who caught The Bugalugs Bum Thief.

Bums, bottoms, behinds, call it what you like! We can guarantee it will be 55 minutes of fun for the whole family, but be warned, you might just laugh your bum off!
