Patch Theatre Company has performed to more than one million children and their families nationally and internationally over its 31-year history.  The Company's production, Pigs Bears and Billy Goats Gruff, has been carefully crafted by quality professional artists to deeply engage children in classical, time-honoured tales.


Pigs, Bears and Billy Goats Gruff is a rich theatrical assemblage of classic children's stories that incorporate the power of the number three.  In the kitchen of an old house, three storytellers and a musician bring to life four classic children's tales - using a table, 3 chairs and a collection of household items and food.


An evocative mix of design, live music, dance and storytelling gives rise to surprising, humorous and vivid adaptations of traditional favourites  - The Three Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Goldilocks and the Three Bears alongside a lesser known classic - The Three Feathers.


The production boasts Patch Theatre Company's trademark eloquence, simplicity and theatrical invention, bringing new light to old tales that remain as psychologically relevant to children today as they always have been.


Pigs, Bears and Billy Goats Gruff is suitable for children from 5 to 10 years of age.


There will be two performances at the Nambour Civic Centre on Monday 15th March at 10am & 12noon.  Book now by phoning Maroochy Venues & Events (located in the foyer of the Nambour Civic Centre) ph: 5475 7777.   This tour is made possible by Playing Australia.
