Do you have a teacher locked in your basement?

The team behind the hit stage productions of The 13, 26 and 52-Storey Treehouses, The Gruffalo, and Mr Stink, bring Horrible Harriet to life on stage at the Sutherland Entertainment Centre on Sunday 20 August.

This production of Horrible Harriet is a play by Maryam Master, adapted from the book by the Australian Children’s Laureate, Leigh Hobbs.

“Horrible Harriet is yet another great show that’s part of the Sutherland Entertainment Centre’s ‘Experience It Live’ program for 2017, catering to children and adults alike, it’s a huge amount of fun,” said Sutherland Shire Mayor Carmelo Pesce.

Horrible Harriet lives in the roof of her school and keeps teachers chained in the cellar to do her homework. Harriet and the other children don’t see eye to eye - but all Harriet really wants is a friend.

When Athol Egghead lands in his hot air balloon, Harriet finally meets someone who understands her. Then Mr. Chicken arrives to disrupt the whole show! Fortunately Horrible Harriet knows how to handle him... or does she?

This play explores themes of bullying, isolation, friendship and personal development and is ideally suited to primary school students

“Embedded in Harriet’s horrible hollers, riotous rants and shouty show tunes, is an important message for young audiences about the meaning of true friendship, being comfortable in your own skin and celebrating diversity,” said Playwright Maryam Master.

Join Harriet's search for identity and friendship, with songs, laughs, mischievous fun - and not least Mr. Chicken himself!

General admission is priced at $20 with concession tickets available for $17, children under 12 costing $15 and Family Passes for 2 adults and 2 children available for $50.

The Eat’n Street restaurant will also be open from 10am for morning tea and lunch with the menu available for viewing in the Sutherland Entertainment Centre website.
