Kids Season
A Monkey Baa Theatre Company production

Edward the Emu

Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre 2020 Season

Tuesday 20 October | 10.30am & 12.30pm

ON SALE NOW TO MEMBERS, ON SALE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC ON MON 9 DEC.  

The award-winning Monkey Baa team bring to the stage a new imagining of the classic Australian books.

From the producers of Possum Magic. Edward is bored with his lot. Being the only emu at the zoo has left him feeling glum and under the impression that the grass is greener in everyone else’s enclosure. Maybe being a seal, or a lion, or a snake might be a better option in life for a lonely bird? Convinced that the other creatures are more popular, Edward breaks ranks and goes to find the fun.

Meanwhile the Keepers are in hot pursuit, hunting high and low to relocate their crowd-pleasing, much-loved feathered attraction. Edward stays one step ahead until he’s ready to head home; concluding that being an emu might be just right after all.

Back at HIS pen, a very shocking but welcome surprise awaits... he’s been replaced by the rather wonderful Edwina the Emu!
