Ted Prior's hugely popular character is brought to life for this magical stage production for our very young theatre lovers!

Grug began his life as the top of a Burrawang tree that fell to the ground. Resembling a small, striped haystack with feet and a nose, Grug is fascinated by the world around him and solves everyday problems creatively and without fuss.

'Windmill has again created a show in which children can wonderfully discover the magic and the fun and play in theatre.' Australian Stage.
