Windmill Theatre Co
A Windmill Theatre Company production. Presented in association with Adelaide Festival Centre
Based on the much-loved picture book character created by Ted Prior.
Grug began his life as the top of a Burrawang tree that fell to the ground. Resembling a small, striped haystack with feet and a nose, Grug is fascinated by the world around him and solves everyday problems creatively and without fuss.
When dancing instructions are too difficult to understand, he invents his own dance and calls it ‘The Grug’. When snails eat his cabbages, Grug plants more cabbages so there will be enough for both him and the snails.
Celebrating 10 years of performances in 2020, Ted Prior’s hugely popular character is brought to life in Windmill’s magical stage production. Having performed to more than 50,000 children and families worldwide, Grug is perfect for our youngest theatre lovers.
He’s like the Elmo of Down Under. The New York Times
