Hairy Maclary & Friends
‘Out of the gate and off for a walk, went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.’
Anyone with young children will recognise these immortal words instantly as the opening lines of the book ‘Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy’ by Lynley Dodd. Following a Sell-Out run at the Fringe 2010, a UK Tour in 2011 and the Christmas season at the Sydney Opera House, Hairy Maclary and his friends are springing off the page once again this summer.
Featuring many of the characters from the books like Hercules Morse, as big as a Horse - Bottomley Potts, covered in spots – Schnitzel von Krumm, with the very low tum and Scarface Claw – the toughest tomcat in town. With music, singing and several of your favourite Hairy Maclary stories, this show is a must for the whole family.
*****ONE4REVIEW Fans of the storybooks cannot fail to enjoy this performance and every child should see this.
**** THE LIST - ‘This is old-school children’s theatre in all the right ways.’
THE SCOTSMAN - when, after 55 minutes, the show came to an end, one little girl behind me just burst into tears, wailing that she didn’t want it to end at all.
MUMS.NET - "...Hairy Maclary was fab, my nearly 3 year old practically levitated in excitement..."
PRIMARY TIMES - …a vibrant, fun filled show that cleverly brings Lynley Dodd’s much-loved children’s books to life.’
