Three Billy Goats Gruff

Click for big version.

Is the grass really greener on the other side…?

Written by Rachel More, directed by Hannah Clarke

4 Moncrieff St., Mt. Victoria

Billy Gruff and his parents have just moved into the country for a slice of the good life and some plans to build some modest chalets on the hillside for a bit of eco-tourism. Billy is horrified at the lack of things to do in the country side and can’t stay away from his cell phone – until he meets Miri who shows him how much fun the great outdoors really are.

Everything looks set to be a blast until some nasty developers turn up and start making their own plans for the untouched countryside... what are the children to do to stop their paradise being ruined? And are they going to get any help from the guardian of the river... the mythical Taniwha?

With the usual twist, audience participation and songs to sing Three Billy Goats Gruff is the most adventurous bridge crossing to be had this winter – make sure you come trip trip tripping along!
