edward the emu : coming soon



A Monkey Baa Theatre Company production

edward the emu

Everyone’s favourite emu, Edward has gone missing! The Keepers are in hot pursuit, hunting high and low to locate their much-loved feathered attraction.

Edward stays one step ahead. Convinced that the other animals in the zoo are having more fun, he flits from seal pool to lion’s den in search of the perfect habitat. The lonely emu is convinced the grass is greener elsewhere until that is he meets Edwina the Emu!

The award-winning Monkey Baa team brings to the stage the classic Australian tale of two emus searching for their identity. With exceptional, world-class puppetry, a beautiful original score and inventive storytelling, the hilarious  and tender story of the two emus leads them to discover that the best thing you can be is… you!

“Monkey Baa’s work makes kids think as well as feel”
