Pete the Sheep is a brand new 50 minute musical, based on Jackie French and Bruce Whatley’s quirky and quintessentially Australian picture book.

Shaun is the new sheep shearer in Shaggy Gully.  Since shearing is such hard work all the other shearers have sheep dogs to help them, but not Shaun.  His partner is Pete, a sheep-sheep!  The other shearers in the shed are not happy with Shaun and his sheep-sheep.

Following rejection by the shearers and their dogs, Shaun and Pete set up their own ‘Shearing Salon’ in town where they are inundated with woolly clients, who delight in Shaun’s styling prowess.

This hilarious musical comedy, imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep, explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual and will be a lasting tribute to honouring your own spirit and strength, whilst working with the flock!

‘…a truly Aussie tale – delightful, funny, iconic, warm and hilariously ocker, from the lingo to the names to the shearers’ blue singlets.’ Kids Book Review 2011

‘A great story about being true to one’s self and accepting the talents of others.  Funny story with equally fun illustrations.  My children loved it.’ Christopher
