Terrapin recently celebrated their 40th birthday and have been responsible for introducing hundreds of thousands of young Tasmanians to the magic of theatre. Their work is increasingly in demand around the world and this school holiday production comes on the back of a season at Sydney Opera House.
Scaredy Cat comes from a long line of fierce hunters, hired for the biggest jobs, with the meanest rodents. When an urgent call comes in, it’s Scaredy’s turn to do the family proud. Only problem is, she’s terrified of mice.
Trapped in an old basement with three cunning critters, Scaredy is bullied and all alone – or so she thinks. As the antique furniture in the basement comes creakily to life, a whole new world of eccentric characters is revealed, leading Scaredy on a journey she’ll never forget.
Terrapin’s new production for 2022 is a funny, beautiful and fantastic story of friendship across generations. Cute doesn’t mean no courage, and old age doesn’t make you obsolete.
