Hairy Maclary and Friends September school holiday attraction: “You’d be barking mad to miss it!”

Following a sell-out season at the Sydney Opera House and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Hairy Maclary and Friends, will be springing off the page these September school holidays live on stage in Melbourne.

Hairy Maclary and Friends is an adaptation of the much-loved Hairy Maclary children's books, by celebrated writer, Lynley Dodd.

Out of the gate and off for a walk, went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy. Anyone with young children will recognize these immortal words instantly as the opening lines of the book Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy by Lynley Dodd.

Featuring the characters from the books like Hercules Morse – as big as a horse, Bottomley Potts – covered in spots, Schnitzel von Krumm with the very low tum and Scarface Claw, the toughest tomcat in town. With music, singing and some of your favourite Hairy Maclary stories, this show is a must-see for the whole family.

Lynley Dodd is an internationally celebrated writer for children and has written 20 Hairy Maclary and Friends books. Her stories are known for their humour, imagination and memorable illustrations. She has received numerous awards and in 2002 was made a Distinguished Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to children’s literature.

The production is presented by Scottish company, Nonsense Room Productions. Bruce Strachan, Artistic Director says, "We are absolutely delighted to be touring Hairy Maclary in Melbourne and Perth this year. We had a huge success at the Sydney Opera House - and are excited about taking the little dog with the big personality to an even wider audience in 2012."
