Westpac Duffy Theatre
Every year, two groups of travelling actors journey from North Cape to Bluff bringing the message It's Cool to Read and Cool to Achieve to tens of thousands of Duffy kids. With over 500 schools to reach each year this exciting live 45-minute show has become a Duffy institution and a highlight of many school calendars. In previous years Duffy kids have been enthralled by shows such as Duffy and Global Girl Save the World, Duffy and the Cloakbay Bully and Duffy - Stuck in the Game! In 2020 Duffy kids have the chance to experience a brand new show - written just for them.
Duffy is spending some time with his friend Bex and they are sharing their new favourite graphic novel series about hybrid animals. The twist is that Bex and her mum Lex have found a guy that can actually bring these animals to life! This means that Bex is the proud new owner of a pet coggen! A coggen is part cat, part dog and part chicken. Unfortunately, this coggen is a terror who they can’t control and he makes a massive mess before escaping and causing havoc throughout the neighbourhood. Duffy and Bex must read the rest of their stories to learn more about coggens before theirs destroys the environment around them.
