Event details

 
“If Pixar had a theatrical division, one would think (and hope) they'd create something like this show.”
- NYTheatre.com
 
“I highly doubt any $40 million Broadway spectacles could pack such an emotional wallop into two-and-a-half hours as Mr. Watts does into 45 minutes. ”
- BroadwayWorld.com
 
“Moving and powerful, this is a strong and memorable story that had us all enchanted.”
- Lucy Kingston, Radio Adelaide
 
 
From the creators of The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer and It’s Dark Outside comes a sensitive new show for children over 7 (and children at heart) about loss, friendship and new beginnings.
 
Bernie 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 Bernie 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.
 
 
Lots of us grow up with or around a family dog or cat.
 
The Last Great Hunt has been pondering what this relationship might mean to the creatures themselves in their first all-ages show.
 
New Owner uses puppetry, animation and a soundtrack by Perth musician Rachael Dease to follow the story of Bernie, a puppy who has to fend for himself after the death of his elderly owner Mabel. 
 
A wordless production, this deeply moving tale of loss and new hope is loaded with magical moments.
