HATSICAL! A puppet musical comedy for kids
September 25 - October 7, 2017
King Street Theatre, 644 King St
DescriptionSonia Hardie, children’s entertainer and Australian Songwriters Association Award finalist is staging a new musical for children at the King St Theatre, Newtown.
Eight original songs written by Sonia Hardie with writing partner Anton Korytnyj were shortlisted in the Songs for Children category at the ASA Awards in 2016 with three songs placing in the top 10 - Swimming in the Bath (3rd), Ducks in the Garden (5th) and Under The Mountain (6th).
Featuring their awarded songs plus more original music YellowKat Productions are proud to present HATSICAL, a new original children’s musical.
In partnership with EMU Productions and The King St Theatre, HATSICAL the musical will run during the September school holidays and is suitable for preschoolers and early to middle primary children.
Featuring puppets, live music, a professional cast, HATSICAL is sure to entertain with its unique musical theatre comedy style and zany puppet characters. From the world of the Meowalot Kids Club where puppets and people hang out, YellowKat and friends use a box of hats to recreate Shakespeare’s romantic comedy ‘Twelfth Night’. A pampered countess, a dragon duke out to impress, two very cheeky monkeys and the hero twins will be boating, sword fighting, letter writing, eating, and getting married all in an hour and all in hats!
YellowKat Productions has been entertaining children with quality content since 2007, performing in preschools, shopping centres, festivals, clubs, private parties and large concerts as well as a regular podcast. With a large catalogue of over 40 songs YellowKat’s music is written specifically to involve, engage, and entertain young children.
