The Last Great Hunt presents
New Owner
By Arielle Gray and Tim Watts

Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart.

The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship - but Mabel is old, and Bart is young – and suddenly alone.

Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner takes us on a world of adventure through a dog’s eyes. Nominated for Best Presentation for Children at the 2017 Helpmann Awards (Australia).

From the creators of international smash hits, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer and It’s Dark Outside comes a sensitive new show for all ages about loss, friendship and new beginnings.

Warning: Contains scenes of sadness and loss that may be upsetting for very small children.

Age recommendation: Ages 7+
Duration: Approx. 50 minutes

This performance is proudly sponsored by Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal.
