Mr Stink comes to life on stage at Civic Theatre

19 Jul 2017

David Walliams’ award-winning book comes to life on stage for children 6-12 and their adults. This charming original Australian adaptation comes to the Civic Theatre Newcastle for two dates only, Tuesday 25 July and Wednesday 26 July 2017.

Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well…”  

It all starts when Chloe, just about the loneliest girl in the world, makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Sure he smells a bit, but he’s the only person who has ever been nice to her. So, when Mr Stink needs a place to stay, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed. 

Now Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret, but she’s about to learn that some secrets have a way of leading to disaster. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or the nose…

The team behind The 13- 26- and 52-Storey Treehouses live on stage return with this touching, twisted and hilarious, and very smelly tale, directed by Newcastle-raised actor and director Jonathan Biggins. Hold on to your nose!

This heart-warming and comical adaptation will enthral and amuse audiences of all ages.

Critics and audiences alike raved about the production:

“boisterous fun…the young audience…thoroughly enjoy[ed] this quality production.”
