Monkey Baa Theatre’s I Am Jack’  just returned from the Ipswich Festival of Children’s Literature where it was the feature event, performed to 1000′s of young people and adults.

Tim McGarry performs the 11 characters in a brilliant one man show.

JACK’s having a return season at the Seymour 24th October to 4th November.

From: Adam Kronenberg – Artistic Director Outback Theatre for Young People

In the finest tradition of the one person show Tim McGarry gave a stunningly good performance. It was like watching Billy Crystal for school kids: terrific range of characters, excellent direction, simple in terms of no need for pyrotechnics and yet so sophisticated in terms of requiring the audience to invest a great deal of belief and understanding of the theatrical devise of the one person show.

award winning illustrator Leigh Hobbs, hams it up with author Meredith Costain (hidden) at Woodlands 1880 Ipswich FestivalThe ghost adventure is dark, eerie in the Woodland 1880s mansion at Ipswich Festival.

Leigh Hobbs creator of the famous and fractious ‘OLD TOM’ was being ‘scary’ with fabulous author Meredith Costain hamming it up as his doppler behind him.

General Macarthur stayed at Woodlands and his red leather chair and desk dominates an upstairs room. So of course the guys all sat in the General’s chair. Then the girls go into the act.Monkey Baa Theatre performing Susanne Gervay's 'I Am Jack' Ipswich Festival for Children's Literature, Woodland at Marburg,author christopher cheng in General Macurther's chair at Woodlands Marburg, Ipswich Festival of Children's Literature

Hundreds of kids poured into the quasi-theatre at Woodlands. They were spellbound at times, laughing at other times and ethusiastically applauding.

 I loved the kids and teacher librarians and teachers from Bethany School, Hattonvale State School, Jundalee State School Fervale, WMAC and IESS – all fabulous!
