The Midnight Gang is a co-production between Spare Parts Puppet Theatre and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
Wild’s story is a peak inside the mysterious world of a sleeping baby. It tells the story of Baby Brenda and her friends – who morph from a group of ordinary toddlers by day to become the ‘midnight gang’ by night.
The members of the West Australian Symphony’s Education Chamber Orchestra (EChO) join five performers from Spare Parts in this stage version of Margaret Wild’s hilarious tale.
