Hippo! A Big New Musical Adventure

Gladstone, Gladstone Area

Hippo! Hippo! A Big New Musical Adventure is based on the phenomenally successful children’s classic, “There’s a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake”, written by Australian children’s author Hazel Edwards and illustrated by Deborah Niland.

Hippo is the imaginary friend of Girl, a young child. Girl believes that Hippo lives on the roof and can seemingly do anything he wants, when he wants, how he wants, particularly the things that Girl is unable or not allowed to do. Through Hippo, Girl is able to allay her fears and gain confidence in her early childhood years. Joyful and brimming with childhood wonder, Hippo! Hippo! A Big New Musical Adventure will make you laugh and maybe even make you cry, but most of all, it is guaranteed to lift your spirits in a big way!

Through storytelling, music, song, dance and imagery, this classic tale about one of the largest and most famous imaginary friends ever will burst onto the stage in its world premiere Australian tour. Brought to you by the producer of Stripey – The Emu Chick! Wombat Stew, Possum Magic, and My Grandma lived in Gouligulch.
