Grug and the Rainbow

School Performances | Windmill Theatre (Australia)

Grug (the “Elmo of Down Under”) began his life as the grassy top of a Burrawang tree – now he’s back by popular demand in a new production full of new surprises. Watch in wonder as he embarks on an epic journey to find the rainbow that always seems just beyond his grasp. Luckily Grug is full of determination and his adventures are always full of surprises!

Featuring exquisite puppetry and more of the gentle storytelling that has delighted audiences around the world, this brand new show has been especially created for the next generation of our littlest theatregoers (and those who just love Grug).
