The Bugalugs Bum Thief
Based on the popular book by Tim Winton
The Bugalugs Bum Thief is a 55 minute fast paced, highly stylized musical comedy farce. It’s a delightfully silly show with 3 energetic actors playing 11 characters and singing 5 catchy songs.
Skeeta Anderson’s got a problem. He’s woken up without his bum. I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it but a bum is a very important part of the anatomy. Skeeta soon realizes that he’s not the only one without a bum.
All 496 citizens of Bugalugs are BUMLESS!!
SO Skeeta sets out with his best friends Mick Misery and Billy Marbles to find the culprit of the crime.
On the way we meet a colourful cast of characters including Skeeta’s Mum and Dad, Miserable Mrs Misery, Mavis Marbles, Constable Coma and the school teacher Mr Wally, who runs an audience participation session inviting young people from the audience to come up and tell their news.
But then great news. Skeeta finds all the bums.
But then bad news. Everyone’s too embarrassed to take their own bums back.
Fat people take the skinny ones, skinny people take the fat ones. Bald people take hairy ones and you can see where I’m going…..
Eventually of course there’s a happy ending and Bugalugs returns to normal and we have the finale song, “If you haven’t got a bum”.
As one teacher has said… It’s an engaging show that totally captures the children’s imaginations.
The Bugalugs Bum Thief is suitable for young people aged 4-10 and their families.
Children must be accompanied by an Adult
