How the Koala Learnt to Hug, Oakengates Telford

Tue 16 Feb 2.30pm
The Place, Oakengates Theatre, Telford

Koalas are the cuddliest critters but just how did the koala learn to hug?

That's the question our magical Australian storyteller means to answer as he tries to get his daughter (as well as the children in the audience) to finally give their parents a well deserved hug.

Will he succeed? 

There’s only one way to find out so join us and our terrific outback cast for this warm and wonderful story about pic nics and bubbles and the magic of family.

Based on the best selling book by Steven Lee this charming family musical has been written especially for children aged three and above to enjoy with their grown ups.

As an extra treat, author Steven will be available to sign copies of How The Koala Learnt To Hug and Other Australian Fairytales which will be on sale at a specially reduced rate after the show.
