From the award-winning Monkey Baa Theatre Company comes a fun family musical for kids based on Jackie French and Bruce Whatley’s quirky and quintessentially Australian picture book, Pete the Sheep (shortlisted for the Children’s Book Council of Australia award).

Discover the irresistible story of Shaun the shearer and Pete the sheep on their hilarious journey from shed to salon. Imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep, this musical comedy is a fair dinkum story of mateship, following your dreams and being true to yourself – even if it means going against the flock.

With the creative minds of Jonathan Biggins (director of Mr Stink) and musician Phil Scott behind this production, you can expect parents to be just as entertained as the kids. Full of catchy songs and true ocker tidbits, this little ripper will have your whole flock giggling and baaing along!

Make a day of it at Sydney Opera House with free creative play activities, junior lunches and fun interactive tours during the July school holidays!

ellaslist Reviews Pete The Sheep

“I took my (almost) 5 year old son and my (almost) 6 year old nephew to the wonderful production of Pete the Sheep at the Opera House by the Monkey Baa Theatre Company on the weekend.  We have not read the book but we love animals and I love any excuse to take my boys to the theatre.

The 50 minute production is a delightful and funny musical about a shearer trying to fit in and some sheep wanting to be true to themselves and their style.  When it first started I was worried it would be too old for my (almost) 5 year old and although he didn’t get all the nuances of the show he thought the dogs and the sheep (and their haircuts!) were hilarious.

My (almost) 6 year old nephew hails from New Zealand and lives in Malaysia. I am always trying to indoctrinate him into the Aussie ways so both he (and I) were delighted by the True Blue Aussie slang and themes of mateship that ran through the production.

It had the audience young and old laughing throughout. The music was catchy and fun and there were jokes for every level of humour, age, and sophistication (from election jokes to poo jokes!).

I thoroughly recommend this production. One to enjoy with your little one whilst also warming your own heart."
