As well as one showing of the Ferocious Petting Zoo. Gasp! As the handler is bitten by a deadly Deep-Sea Biter Fish. Laugh! As the Lop-Eared Razor Mink keeps trying to escape. And Pose! As you take selfies with the menagerie of deadly but very, very pattable Ferocious Animals.

On Friday, along with the great entertainment above, the Theatre will be adding he Naughty Keas into the mix. Hopping through the show grounds, pecking at your picnics, nibbling at your fingers, and trying to get into your wine these beautiful oversize puppets are out to cause the most mischief they can. All the while being chased by an exasperated DOC worker who is desperately trying to get them under control.
