The Little Yellow Digger
by BETTY AND ALAN GILDERDALE
adapted for the stage by TIM BRAY
songs by CHRISTINE WHITE
Based on the series of children’s picture books about The Little Yellow Digger by Betty and Alan Gilderdale.
When the little yellow digger gets stuck in the mud, a range of bigger diggers are sent to finish the job…plus other fun adventures of this tiny tenacious machine.
Costume Parade (Gala and School Holiday Season only)
Encourage your children to dress up as their favourite character for the onstage Costume parade just prior to the start of the show.

School Holiday Theatre Workshops
Is your child a budding actor, director, stage manager, or theatre technician?
Children are invited into the daily life of the Tim Bray Productions’ theatre company. Our tutors, cast and crew guide them in a hands-on adventure inside the theatre itself, including a ticket to the 10.30 am performance of the current show. Have fun learning basic stagecraft through theatre games, quizzing actors and stage crew about the performance they have just seen, learning about the role of lighting and sound, and touring backstage with the stage manager who reveals the unseen work that makes a show successful.
Workshop dates for Little Yellow Digger:
- Tuesday, 1st October
- Thursday 3rd October
- Friday 4th October
