The Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie

The iconic Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie come to life at Retford Park in a funny and enchanting outdoor production that introduces contemporary audiences to the wonderful world of May Gibbs.

May Gibbs’ quintessentially Australian classics have fascinated and delighted generations of children and families, introducing them to the wonder and magic of the Australian bush.

In this charming outdoor adaptation, the iconic Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie come to life for contemporary audiences.

The Gumnut Babies are on a mission to see a human – but only from a distance! On their journey to the big city they meet friends and foes including Mrs Kookaburra, Mrs Fantail, Mr Lizard, Mr Frog, Mrs Snake, and, of course, Little Ragged Blossom.

Can Snugglepot lead the way? Can Cuddlepie hold his nerve? Can they avoid falling victim to the Big Bad Banksia Man?

These beloved characters come to life at Retford Park, Bowral, in an outdoor production of this funny and enchanting performance that introduces today’s children to the wonderful world of May Gibbs.

Adapted from the book Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie by May Gibbs, by arrangement with The Northcott Society and Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
