Life is already hectic for George, but it gets even worse when her appalling Grandma comes to stay. Fed up of her rudeness, she mixes her a ‘new and improved’ medicine – but the consequences are much more than she bargained for. After seeing the medicine in action, George’s father decides to try it on the animals next – with hilarious and calamitous results!

PLEASE NOTE: In reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic, Encore Theatre are intending to stage the show outdoors in a section of Warrawee Park. We are still negotiating with City of Monash to confirm our exact performance location.

Other Information:

While the show is only 45 minutes long, there is limited shade in certain areas of Warrawee Park, so audience members are encouraged to think about how best to manage their sun protection. Sun screen will be made available through our Front-of-House staff.

Also, there will be restrictions relating to mitigating the risk posed by Covid-19. While these are not yet known, masks will almost certainly be compulsory, and some measure of social distancing will be required between groups and individuals.

All advice regarding sun protection and information about Covid-19 restrictions will be communicated clearly to each ticket holder before the date of the performance.

In the case of wet weather and no performance, then all affected audience will be offered either a transfer of their ticket to another performance, or a full refund.
