Events: The Very Bad Book Show

Don't miss Andy Griffiths' The Very Bad Book Show, playing in Melbourne from 5 to 21 January at RMIT in the city.

Written and illustrated by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton, and adapted and directed by Lynne Ellis, the performance features a bad mummy and daddy, very rude animals, blood-sucking Grannies and killer koalas from outer space!

Adapted from Griffiths' The Very Bad Book, this terribly BAD kid’s show contains nothing but very bad stories about very bad characters doing very bad things!

The Production
For 26 years, RMIT Union [Arts] have been producing affordable children’s theatre that fires up the imagination of its young audiences. Adapted & directed by Lynne Ellis, the shows are staged and performed by RMIT University students and have introduced tens of thousands of children to the joys of live theatre, performance and literature.

This energetic 2010 production of The Very Bad Book brings to life the crazy work of author Andy Griffiths and illustrator Terry Denton – and involves the audience in every step of the adventure. It’s loud, hilarious and inspiring…. for all ages!
