22 Sep – 6 Oct @ Spare Parts Puppet Theatre ·
Presented by: Spare Parts Puppet Theatre ·

Jamie lives in a concrete jungle – a fast paced, busy city. From her apartment window, the only natural things she can see are the birds in the sky. She dreams of making friends with animals, but Mum and Dad won’t let her have a pet in their apartment.

As the city sleeps, Jamie dreams of a one-of-a-kind visit to the zoo with meerkat, thorny devil, giraffe, penguin, orangutan and even a baby elephant. But as hard as she tries Jamie can’t get the animals to communicate with her and her dream ends in disappointment.

And then something magical happens – the animals come to find her for a night of dancing and friendship. When the sun comes up the next day there is one more surprise – Jamie meets a homeless dog who’s also looking for a friend…

“What makes the show so memorable is its wonderful storybook-like design and the vast and most impressive range of puppets the company has created for a single show that I can remember.” – Pier Leach, The West Australian.
