Theatre For Children Inc Presents: “TALE OF A DOG”
Written By Peter Wilson
Starring: David Ladderman, Fergus Aitken
Directed By Fraser Hooper & Amalia Calder
By arrangement with Playmarket
Tale of a Dog was originally commissioned by Capital E National Theatre for Children.
Three of New Zealand's top international clowns give us a fun-filled slice of circus life, with the added flavour of some classic KidzStuff treats.
Did you ever want to run away and join the circus? Well now it is time to let an old dog teach you some new tricks and help him on his journey of discovery to the moon and back. Dog is a much loved, energetic pooch, full of new ideas and clever tricks to amaze his circus audiences. However, the moody ring master is determined to keep Dog tied down to the old ways.
So, get out your leads and come for a walk with KidzStuff, on a paw-shaking, belly-scratching, barking-mad tale that is bound to leave you begging for more.
Collectively, David, Fergus, Fraser & Amalia have over 100 years experience of performing to audiences all over the globe!
