A lively and mischievous musical for young audiences and their adults.

Based on the book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley
Adapted for the stage by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge & Tim McGarry

Monkey Baa’s award-winning musical returns to Wollongong! Imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep, this hilarious 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 quintessentially Australian picture book, with The Wharf Revue’s Phil Scott & Jonathan Biggins providing foot-tapping music and comedic direction, Pete the Sheep is a lively and mischievous musical for young audiences and their adults.
