In celebration of the 100th anniversary of this classic piece of Australian children’s literature being published, Michael Sieders Presents an all new exclusive production of Norman Lindsay’s The Magic Pudding.
The Magic Pudding was first published in 1918, and thousands of children and their parents have been relishing it ever since. Norman Lindsay’s timeless classic follows the adventures of a debonair young koala Bunyip Bluegum, sailor Bill Barnacle and penguin Sam Sawnoff – owners of the much-desired Magic Puddin’ Albert – who try to out-wit Possum and Wombat, the professional, and extraordinarily persistent, puddin’-thieves.
This colourful, lively production will feature an all puppet cast that will look like they’ve just jumped off a Norman Lindsay canvas. With an adventure and a friendship to capture children’s imagination, these iconic Australian characters will come to life once more for a new generation of puddin’ fans.
