SPOT

based on the books by Eric Hill


Spot is one of the most loved dogs in the world, and he's coming to Australia!

Spot and his friends are off on a new adventure to visit Spot's Dad on the farm and meet the farm animals. But when they arrive, all the animals are lost! Can Spot and his friends find them all? They might need a little help from their new friends in the audience…

Eric Hill's beloved puppy comes to life on stage with puppetry, songs, and puzzles for the whole family.
