Pete the Sheep
Pete the Sheep
Imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep, this hilarious musical comedy explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual whilst being part of the flock! Based on Jackie French and Bruce Whatley’s quirky and classic Australian picture book, Pete the Sheep.
Shaun is the new sheep shearer in Shaggy Gully. Since shearing is such hard work, all the other shearers have sheep dogs to help them, but not Shaun. His partner is Pete, a sheep-sheep! The other shearers in the shed are not happy with Shaun and his sheep-sheep.
Following rejection by the shearers and their dogs, Shaun and Pete set up their own Shearing Salon in town where they are inundated with woolly clients who delight in Shaun’s styling prowess. This hilarious musical comedy, imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual, and will be a lasting tribute to honouring your own spirit and strength, whilst working with the flock!
Adapted by Monkey Baa in 2014 from the picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, with foottapping music and lyrics by Phil Scott and comedic direction by Jonathan Biggins, Pete the Sheep is a lively and mischievous award-winning musical for young audiences and their adults.
