Grug and the Rainbow is a children’s play performed by the Windmill Theatre in Australia. This performance is going to be held in the Multifunction Hall of Tianqiao Art Center this summer from July 14 to July 31 in Beijing.
The performance that features exquisite puppetry and gentle storytelling has delighted audiences from all over the world. This brand new show was especially created for kids aged 2-6, and of course those who just love Grug.
Grug is a fictional character that appeared in a series of Australian children’s books written by the author Ted Prior. Grug is a personable megastar who began his life on the grassy top of a burrawang tree. Never short of an exciting adventure, “he is now back by popular demand after many sold out seasons across the world, including New York’s Broadway,” commented by windmill.org.au. Grug is also absolutely fascinated by the world around him and readily solves everyday problems in creative ways.
In Grug’s epic journey in search of a rainbow, the colorful arc always seems to be beyond his grasp despite his efforts. Even so, he is always full of determination and his adventures are full of surprises that would instantly light up audience’s mood. In this show, children can always joyfully discover the magic and fun of the theatre, and sometimes even get a chance to play in the theatre. “For example, if the dancing instructions were too hard for Grug to understand, he would invent his own dance and calls it “The Grug”. When snails eat his cabbages, Grug plants more cabbages so there will be enough for both him and the snails,” according to windmill.org.au. The show lasts for 35 minutes and is in both Chinese and English, which makes it accessible to a wider audience.
As the “Barefoot Review” commented, “‘Grug and the Rainbow’ is amongst the best children’s theatre you will find; don’t miss this gorgeous show.” This is definitely a performance in which you can have fun with your children. If you want to purchase one ticket, it will only cost you RMB 200; if you want to buy two, then it will be RMB 380; for 3 tickets, the price will be RMB 540.
