December 27th, 2018

It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing today of Penny Cook.

Penny was a founding board member of Monkey Baa from February 2005 and
Chair of the board from 2014 until recently. Penny was a champion of theatre for young people, a champion of regional arts in Australia, a champion for the arts.
Her passion, energy and tenacity for Monkey Baa will always be remembered,
she is irreplaceable and much loved. We will miss her dearly.

Our condolences go out to David and Poppy and all her many friends and family.

Penny’s family has asked us not to send gifts of flowers. Instead, donations can
be made to Monkey Baa Theatre Company or Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.
A celebration of Penny’s life will be announced later.
