Francis Street and William St,
Join the gumnut babies, as they set off on their quest to see some humans!
On the way, meet their friends Mr. Lizard and Mr. Frog and watch them battle it out with the cunning Mrs. Snake and her wicked sidekicks, the Banksia men.
Featuring many of your favourite characters from May Gibbs’ well-loved children’s books – including lovely Ragged Blossom, gluttonous Mrs. Kookaburra and flirty Mrs. Fantail – this ballet is the perfect way for children to discover (and adults to re-live) the magic of this iconic Australian story, inspired by the plants and creatures of the Western Australian bush.
