Celebrate the 110th Anniversary of Beatrix Potter’s beloved classic with Happy Birthday Peter Rabbit, a mischievous musical about the world’s most loveable bunny.
Published in 1902 by Frederick Warne, The Tale of Peter Rabbit has transported countless children to Mr McGregor’s vegie patch for over a century; it’s set to reach a new generation with this classic stage production that kids will love! Adapted by Australian writer and award-winning producer Garry Ginivan (Possum Magic, Wombat Stew, My Grandma Lived in Gooligulch) and with an original score by Mark Jones, Happy Birthday Peter Rabbit seamlessly interweaves the tales of Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny and Mr Tod, and is designed to delight children and adults alike.
With Beatrix Potter as the Narrator/Storyteller and Peter Rabbit, Cousin Benjamin Bunny, Old Mr Bunny, Tommy Brock, Mr Tod and (a three-metre high!) Mr McGregor – Happy Birthday Peter Rabbit will be the highlight of children’s theatre in 2012.
