Grug and the Rainbow

Presented by Windmill Theatre Co in association with Adelaide Festival Centre

Limited seats available


More stories based on the picture book character created by Ted Prior.

Grug began his life as the top of a Burrawang tree that fell to the ground. Fascinated by the world around him and full of determination, Grug embarks on an epic journey to reach the rainbow that always seems just beyond his grasp.

Will our grassy little friend find what he’s looking for? And what fun and adventure will he have along the way?

Featuring exquisite puppetry, plenty of surprises and more of the gentle storytelling that has delighted audiences around the world, this show has been especially created for our littlest theatregoers (and Grug fans of all ages).

Another exquisitely simple set from Jonathon Oxlade, and the lightest touch from director Sam Haren. The Advertiser
Director Sam Haren has harnessed every element – Jonathon Oxlade’s design magic, DJ TR!P’s funky composition, accessible storytelling, and the puppetry itself – into a seamless whole, all performed in a tight 35 minutes: an ideal length for young attention spans. Sydney Morning Herald
