Event Details

Ensemble Offspring, Sydney’s favourite musical mavericks, are joined by Georgia Adamson (CDP/Monkey Baa Theatre Snuggle Pot and Cuddle Pie), to bring Dorothy Wall’s classic children’s tale Blinky Bill to life. Featuring old-fashioned colonial folk tunes, contemporary sounds of the Australian landscape, interactive moments, songs, narrated excerpts from the bush classic and a score by Boyd, Edwards, Grainger, Pollard, Sculthorpe and Westlake; Bilby's Bluegum Melodies is a great way to introduce children to the music of contemporary Australian composers.

Suitable for: Children 2+ and their adults
