Info Cast & Creatives Reviews


The Art House presents 
a Windmill Theatre Company production
based on the picture books by Ted Prior

Once the top of a Burrawang tree fell to the ground. Then the grassy top began to change. It became Grug!

Stunning design and beautiful live puppetry combine to bring Ted Prior’s iconic picture book character to the stage where audiences join Grug on some of his most exciting adventures.

Along with his friends Snoot the Echidna and the crabby Cara the Carpet Snake, audiences will step into Grug’s burrow and help him grow cabbages, learn to dance and explore his wondrous new world in a charming show designed for even the youngest theatregoers (and Grug fans of all ages). 

Brought to you by Windmill Theatre Company (Bluey’s Big Play and TV’s Beep and Mort), Grug is a smash-hit production that introduces a whole new generation to one of Australia’s most iconic characters.

Grug is a Windmill Theatre Company and Queensland Performing Arts Centre’s Out of the Box Festival co-production. Windmill is assisted by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its arts funding and advisory body.
