GRUG : Presented by Windmill Theatre Company

Once the top of a Burrawang tree fell to the ground. Then the grassy top began to change. It became Grug!

Stunning design and beautiful live puppetry combine to bring Ted Prior’s iconic picture book character to the stage in a smash-hit production that sees audiences join Grug on some of his most exciting adventures.

Along with his friends Snoot the Echidna and the crabby Cara the Carpet Snake, audiences will step into Grug’s burrow and help him grow cabbages, learn to dance and explore his wondrous new world in a charming show designed for even the youngest theatregoers (and Grug fans of all ages).

From artists behind lauded children’s work like Bluey’s Big Play and televisions Beep and Mort, Grug is a smash-hit production that introduces a whole new generation to one of the world’s favourite characters.

Based on the much-loved picture book character created by Ted Prior.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
