Little Yellow Digger live show in Auckland for School Holidays

Much-loved children’s story The Little Yellow Digger comes to life on stage in Auckland in September and October.

Auckland’s leading children’s theatre company, Tim Bray Productions presents the first stage adaptation of Betty and Alan Gilderdale’s The Little Yellow Digger at the PumpHouse Theatre, Takapuna from September 22 to October 11.

Thousands of New Zealand children have grown up with the Gilderdales’ popular children’s picture book and theatre producer Tim Bray said he is delighted to be bringing the story of the tiny tenacious machine to the stage.

“I think almost every pre-school, kindergarten, Playcentre and childcare centre would have a copy of The Little Yellow Digger. We know how popular this book is among young children and we can’t wait for them to come along and see our little yellow digger and friends on their adventures.”

The cast for The Little Yellow Digger includes Laura Sanderson as Doug, Jared Kirkwood as Bob and Jason Wu as Mr Lacky with original music performed Kristie Addison.

The Little Yellow Digger is the third show presented as part of Tim Bray Productions’ 2014 children’s theatre programme.

The Little Yellow Digger is at The PumpHouse, Takapuna, Auckland from Monday 22 September to Saturday 11 October. Performance times are: 22-26 September, two shows daily at 10.30am and 1pm and September 27 to October 11, two shows daily at 10.30am and 2pm (No shows Sundays or public holidays).
