The Brilliant Australian musical My Grandma Lived in Gooligulch is set to entertain a Tasmanian audience for one day only on Friday, September 9.
Based on the much-loved book and developed by international bestselling author Graeme Base and the producer of Wombat Stew and Possum Magic, Garry Ginivan, the production promises to be a big hit for the local theatre scene.
The production tells the story of Kate, a city kid forced to spend the summer holidays with her eccentric Grandma in an outback town.
Assuming it will be the worst time of her life, Kate is surprised to find that the local animals in Gooligulch can talk – leading to a whole new world of excitement.
Nominated for Helpmann Award, the production premiered at the Arts Centre in Melbourne in 2006 to rave reviews of its humour, imaginative puppeteering, original music and top-shelf cast.
It will be held at the Devonport Entertainment and Convention Centre – housed in two magnificent Federation heritage buildings and located right in the heart of town.
It offers sublime views of the Mersey River, which is home to the passenger and vehicle ferries Spirit of Tasmania 1 and 2.
Tickets for the two shows – at 14:00 and 18:00 – cost $25 for adults and $20 for children and can be purchased online.
