‘BAERLIE and FRIENDS is a puppet show, suitable for audiences between the ages of 3 and 10 years old (although younger children might enjoy the shows as well as parents).

Merriwa, Perth, WA, Australia

Contrary to the title, BAERLIE is not in the show but manages the troupe and also writes all plays.

The original cast: KEVIN, a little Koala, who manages to find trouble everywhere, KAREN the Kangaroo, WILBUR the Wombat, DANNI the Tasmanian Devil and BILLY the Blue Heeler were joined by many other animals.

There is Larry the labrador puppy who likes carrots, Claire, the kitten loves to be cuddled, Elli elephant is afraid of mice and Milli the mouse likes to tease Elli, Carl is the friendliest crocodile you will ever meet, Penny, the polar bear and Po the panda are best friends, Willy Wolf is a big baby, Leo the lion always looses his brush (that is why his mane is messy), Flopper, a rabbit who would love to have straight ears, Gregory the grizzly who loves to sing and The Little Donowat.

The shows last approximately 30 minutes and include singing and moving to get the Ants out of our Pants, so we can watch the show without wiggling around.

All shows have educational themes. These are some of the stories the puppets like to perform:

The yellow flower (forgiving, helping): when Kevin does not listen to Karen and plays with the fruit of the Hiccerupperatree, all his friends come together to help him get rid of his hiccups.

Floppers Birthday Presents (sharing, respecting other's property): Larry the labrador thinks everything he finds is his but Claire the cat shows him that just taking is not the right way to make friends.

The little Donowat (self worth, individuality): the little donowat learns that one does not have to look like everybody else (I look cute and a little odd / I am me, am I not?). and more.

Shows are played to a maximum of 30 children to allow constructive interaction between the puppets and the audience.
