Monkey Baa Theatre Celebrates a Fabulous Year

Monkey Baa Theatre Celebrates a Fabulous Year

Duncan Ball author of 'Emily Eyefinger', with Kerry Comerford Chair  board  Monkey Baa TheatreI LOVE MonkeyBaa Theatre.

Tim MacGarry, Sandra Eldridge and Eva Di Cesare, the Directors of Monkey Baa Theatre are creative, passionate and have done a brilliant job adapting Australian children’s literature for the stage.

Their adaptation of Jackie French’s ‘Hitler’s Daughter’ will be touring North America next year.

Next year opens with Tim Winton’s Bugalugs – it’s booked across Australia.

However the piece de la resistance is the adaptation of Duncan Ball’s ‘Emily Eyefinger – it was magic – the comedy, the digital support and animation enhancing the talented actors. Of course Tim McGarry (who plays my JACK in ‘I AM JACK’) was the star to me – he was hilarious.  They were all great and played to full houses.

The Christmas party was fun with cast members, production manager Sam Johnston (who did I AM JACK – love Sam), the Monkey Baa team. board members and of course … actors. Love them all.
