You may recall watching the film version of BABE many years ago, but did you know the award winning comedy-drama is 20 years old this year?

To coincide with the 20th anniversary of BABE the movie, the Victorian Youth Theatre presents BABE The Sheep-Pig. The theatre production follows the same story based on the 1983 best selling children's book The Sheep-Pig, which inspired the famed movie.

BABE The Sheep-Pig stars farmyard characters in an adventure that follows a gallant pig (Babe) as he proves himself to be a hero when protecting his owner Father Hogget and his sheep. In an usual turn of events, Farmer Hogget decides to train Babe to become a sheepdog, or rather sheep-pig. Babe's herding techniques prove somewhat usual.

Victorian Youth Theatre's cast will see 17 year old Madeleine Horsey play the lead role of Babe, 19 year old TJ Lawson as Farmer Hoggett and 16 year old Courtney Martyn as Mrs Hoggett.
