The Gizmo,

Written by Verity Laughton, Adapted from the novel by Paul Jennings

Published by Penguin Australia. // An NCM production.

"Something is in my pocket. Something made of steel. It is the Gizmo. It is back in my pocket even though I just threw it away. What is going on here? Am I going nuts? Or what?"

A hilarious, fun filled adventure that will have the whole family in stitches.

Whilst at the local fair, Stephen is baited by his hero Floggitt into stealing. He steals the whirling, twirling illuminating Gizmo, that sends him on a wild adventure. Finding it impossible to just simply get rid of the Gizmo by returning, burying or throwing on to a passing coal train, the Gizmo starts to exact it's revenge by placing Stephen in several extra-ordinary situations!

Join Stephen and Floggitt on this hilarious and playful journey of self discovery through music, puppetry, physical storytelling and visual effects.

Recommended ages 6+
