Winners Announced … The Gruffallo’s Child

Winners of Wild Nights (4)

Have a wonderful time Stefanie and Sapna! We can’t wait to hear all about it! Could you please email me at info@kiddingaroundaustralia.com to organise delivery of your tickets!


Based on the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, published by Macmillan Children’s Books,

THE GRUFFALO IS RETURNING TO MELBOURNE – WITH HIS CHILD!

After sell-out seasons of its predecessor nation-wide, the team behind “The Gruffalo” return with the charming sequel based on Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s world wide best seller, playing at the National Theatre, St Kilda from 14-19 July 2015.

The Gruffalo said that no Gruffalo should

Ever set foot in the deep dark wood…

But one wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s child ignores her father’s warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he?

The Gruffalo’s Child brings this much loved book to life on stage, using physical theatre, music and puppetry to deliver songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 4 and up and their adults.

This best selling production, which has wowed audiences around the world, returns to Melbourne for one week only after a sold out premiere season in 2012.

Critics have raved about The Gruffalo’s Child:

winningly played (Sydney Morning Herald)

can’t fail to please (Brisbane Courier Mail)

…this brave little offspring of the Gruffalo captures the young audience and keeps it entranced…. (Stage Whispers)

MORE INFORMATION ON WILD NIGHTS

Rug up and tour the Zoo by torchlight, as you spot Hippos grazing on the beach and Wild Dogs, Cheetah and Lions on the prowl. You can also get close to some very special nocturnal natives including Squirrel Gliders, Fat-tailed Dunnarts and Eastern Barred Bandicoots.

Fire spinning performers will delight visitors of all ages with nightly fire shows and the kids will love the interactive Glow Zone which includes hula hooping and other glow in the dark circus fun.

Follow the tiki torches to discover the light-dappled Secret Garden or settle in at the campfire and enjoy a hot chocolate and free marshmallow toasting under the stars.

Warm winter fare will also be available in the cosy, Meerkat Bistro and indoor play space. Ranger Kids will provide another comfy spot for families to relax as the kids transform themselves into vets and rangers, caring for plush animals in the medic tent and testing out the wooden helicopter.

Rug up, pop on your gumboots and bring your torch for this very special adventure in the dark as you discover what goes bump, hoot and ROAR in the night!

For the ultimate Wild Nights experience, book in for a special Dusk Safari Bus Tour of the  African savannah, spotting Rhinos, Zebra and antelope out on the grassy plains.
