Join Australia’s favourite comedy duo, the Umbilical Brothers as they read ‘The Prince and the Witch and the Thief and the Bears’ written by Alastair Chisholm and illustrated by Jez Tuya.
Jamie settles down for a story at bedtime with his dad. His imaginative interjections turn the traditional fairy tale into a story featuring a broccoli-wielding ninja frog, a jewel thief and a lock picking princess.
The Umbilical brothers bring their unique mix of mind-bending comedy and back-breaking physicality into play to bring this children’s favourite to life.
Created by Sydney Opera House as part of New Work Now and enabled by Kathy and Greg Shand AO.
