Harriet can’t be that horrible… or can she? Perhaps you should be the judge of that!

Treat your kids as you bring them to Horrible Harriet Sunday 19 March 10.30am or 1pm and see Australian Children's Laureate Leigh Hobbs' best selling series come to life on stage at The Joan.

Filled with songs, laughs and mischievous fun, this hilarious tale of friendship and identity is sure to have kids and their adults captivated as Harriet’s misguided world of mayhem and meanness comes to life!

Horrible Harriet lives in a nest in the roof of the school and keeps the teachers chained in the cellar to do her homework - so far so good! But all the other children are scared of Harriet and don’t like to play with her and with her horrible hollers and riotous rants – who would blame them? So when a new student, Athol Egghead arrives in a hot-air balloon Harriet gets a chance at new first impression. She finds her first friend and discovers how marvellous friendship can be as her natural naughtiness finds a new avenue of expression.

A free-spirited and wholehearted celebration of the eccentric, this is a delightful story and carries an important message about the meaning of true friendship, being comfortable in your own skin and celebrating diversity!

More than entertainment, the play by Maryam Master jump-starts children’s imaginations and will lengthen their attention span as they sit spellbound in a darkened room, focusing on the delight of Leigh Hobbs’, Horrible Harriet as she jumps to life off the page and onto the stage.

Horrible Harriet - A play by Maryam Master, adapted from the books by Leigh Hobbs. Brought to life by CDP Kids Productions, the team behind the smash hit stage productions of The 52-Storey Treehouse and Mr Stink.

Wicked, wild and wonderful, Horrible Harriet is not your average child, she is one in a million. Suitable for children over four. Don’t miss out – Sunday 19 March, 10.30am & 1pm at The Joan tickets on sale now!
