The Bugalugs Bum Thief

Shared by |tags, , , ,

Tim Winton’s hilarious whodunit The Bugalugs Bum Thief returns to the Theatre Royal in Hobart for two unforgettable performances.

Join Skeeta Anderson and his best mates Mick Misery and Billy Marbles on their side-splitting adventure to find his missing bum.

You will also get to meet a range of colourful characters such as Mick’s Mum and Mrs Misery that add new twists and turns to the story, as well as the odd red herring, before Skeeta finally identifies the culprit.

With a string of successful performances across five states, you can be sure that your little one will be in for a good time watching seasoned actors take to the stage and bring an Australian children’s classic to life.

And what better way to turn your afternoon out into a fun family day trip than by spending time discovering Hobart.

For visitors to the island state, the performance is a rare opportunity to combine activities that are suitable for both adults and kids.

Head down to Salamanca Place to see the city as it looked in its days as a whaling centre or make your way to Battery Point so that you can learn more about Tasmania’s first settlers and convict past.

For those who don’t mind rising early, you can enjoy a gourmet breakfast in town and then to the Salamanca markets before heading off to the show in the afternoon.

Anyone with children who are a little older might also want to see the city by night and visit one of its many fine eateries after the performance has finished.

Tickets are on sale now for the August 23 and 24 shows, with adult prices starting at $15 though to $25.
