Redland Performing Arts Centre presents CDP with Tall Stories’ production of
Adapted from the picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

Soar into space with this exciting adaptation of the award-winning book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (also seen in the TV animation on ABC Kids).

On a far-off planet, Smeds and Smoos can’t be friends. So when a young Smed and Smoo fall in love and zoom off into space together, how will their families get them back?

Fans of The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom live on stage will delight in this latest show from CDP and Tall Stories, brought to life with music, laughs, puppetry, interplanetary adventures, and a diverse new cast of Australian performers.

Coming to Australia for the first time, direct from London’s West End, The Smeds and The Smoos will be loved by children aged 3 and up (and their families).


RAMP Member discounted price is available for this production.
