Horrible Harriet

“Embedded in Harriet’s horrible hollers, riotous rants and shouty show tunes, is an important message for young audiences about the meaning of true friendship, being comfortable in your own skin and celebrating diversity.” Maryam Master, Playwright

A tale of identity, friendship and Mr Chicken!

We’re kicking off the year with a tale of identity, friendship, and Mr Chicken, from Australia’s current Children’s Laureate.

Look out! Here comes Horrible Harriet. She’s wicked, wild and wonderful!

Horrible Harriet lives in the roof of her school and keeps teachers chained in the cellar to do her homework. Harriet and the other children don’t see eye to eye – but all Harriet really wants is a friend.

When Athol Egghead lands in his hot air balloon, Harriet finally meets someone who understands her. Then Mr Chicken arrives to disrupt the whole show! Fortunately
Horrible Harriet knows how to handle him… or does she?

The team behind the hit stage productions The 13, 26 and 52-Storey Treehouses, The Gruffalo, and Mr Stink, bring the works of Australian Children’s Laureate, Leigh Hobbs, to life on stage.

Join Harriet’s search for identity and friendship, with songs, laughs, mischievous fun – and not least Mr Chicken himself!

Age recommendation: 4+yrs and their adults.
Duration: Approximately 55 mins, no interval
Warning: A small amount of theatrical smoke
