Mrs Wishy-Washy by Joy Cowley Adapted for the stage by Tim Bray Songs by Christine White Created for ages 3-8 Show run time: approx. 50-60 minutes, no interval Scrub-a-Dub with Mrs Wishy-Washy "Oh, lovely mud!" exclaim Mrs Wishy-Washy's farm animals Cow, Duck, and Pig. These beloved characters from Joy Cowley's series of picture books are about to come to life in a hilarious stage performance by Tim Bray Theatre Company. While the animals just love getting mucky, Mrs Wishy-Washy is determined to keep them spotless for the Big Farm Fair. In this funny farmyard adventure, audiences will be treated to comical chaos as Mrs Wishy-Washy attempts to give her muddy animal buddies a good scrub. This tale teaches valuable lessons about determination, friendship and the consequences of one's actions, while offering plenty of opportunities to enjoy some good, clean, laugh-out loud fun. Review: “Mrs Wishy-Washy is more than just a comfortable hour-long dalliance in the theatre. It is a fine addition to children’s theatre repertoire and it does Joy Cowley proud on every level. It’s well worth a visit, but get in quick because it’s bound to sell out." – Lexie Matheson, Theatreview NZSL Interpreted performances: Sat 21 September 5:00pm (Gala) Thu 26 September 10:30am NZSL + Deaf Stage Experience post-show (School Term performance) Sat 12 October 10:30am Discounted tickets for Deaf and disabled patrons.
