Look out! Here comes Horrible Harriet. She’s wicked, wild and wonderful! And she’s coming to Geelong Performing Arts Centre these school holidays.
A tale of identity, friendship and Mr Chicken, Horrible Harriet is a CDP Kids production, adapted by Maryam Master from the popular children’s books by author Leigh Hobbs.
Horrible Harriet lives in the roof of her school and keeps teachers chained in the cellar to do her homework. Harriet and the other children don’t see eye to eye – but all Harriet really wants is a friend.
When Athol Egghead lands in his hot air balloon, Harriet finally meets someone who understands her. Then Mr Chicken arrives to disrupt the whole show. Fortunately, Horrible Harriet knows how to handle him … or does she?
Join Harriet’s search for identity and friendship, with songs, laughs, mischievous fun – and not least Mr Chicken himself.
The team behind the hit stage productions The 13, 26 and 52-Storey Treehouses, The Gruffalo, and Mr Stink bring the works of Australian Children’s Laureate, Leigh Hobbs, to life on stage.
Horrible Harriet comes to Geelong as part of the Love Central Geelong Family Magic Program, for two performances only, on Saturday 23 September. Tickets are $22 each or $20 each in groups of four or more. Book at gpac.org.au or phone Box Office on 5225 1200.
