Emily Eyefinger

On Saturday night Tony and I saw the first session of the play 'Emily Eyefinger' at the Seymour Centre  based on the books by Duncan Ball. 

The production was created by Monkey Baa, the energetic and insightful theatre company that creates plays from Australian children’s books. The production of 'Emily Eyefinger' had the audience, both adults and kids completely absorbed and quite often laughing out aloud with their zany dialogue and exploits. The kids in the audience got so entranced that they were yelling out the end of a sentence when the actors paused for effect.

Jason Blake reviewed 'Emily Eyefinger' in the SMH yesterday. He felt “This energetic stage adaptation of Duncan Ball’s adventure series for children combines the silliness of Ripping Yarns with the wackiness of Scooby-Doo”

It’s the perfect holiday treat for 5 to 10 year olds and is on at the Seymour Centre until July 16th. The Riverside Theatre Parramatta  has performances from August 2nd  to 5th and the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in Penrith from August 6th to the 9th.
