Dot and the Kangaroo is a children's book written by Ethel C. Pedley, first published in 1899. The story follows a little 5yr old girl named Dot who gets lost in the Australian outback and befriends a kangaroo.



Despite the Kangaroo's fear of humans, she helps her new little friend Dot, who, upon eating berries, is able to understand the language of all animals.

This beautiful tale gained worldwide recognition when it was adapted into an animated film in 1977, although some 50 years prior, the book appeared on stage in a 1924 production.

Stalker Theatre brings Creature: An Adaptation of Dot and the Kangaroo to Melbourne theatres this Autumn, first performing at the Frankston Arts Centre in April. This visually spectacular live show, which has been touring close to a decade, uses contemporary dance, acrobatics, music & song, animation and interactive technology.

Creature: An Adaptation of Dot and the Kangaroo adapted by John Romeril will introduce your family to the Australian bush as you've never seen it before; with beautiful backdrops and eye-catching creative 3D projections.
