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's Time Travel Mission, Duffy and Global Girl Save the World and Duffy and the Cloakbay Bully. In 2019 Duffy kids have the chance to experience a brand new show - written just for them.
It is the school holidays and Duffy is off to spend the break with his cousin Sam and Aunty Grace. Sam and Duffy don’t get to see each other much, as they live in different cities, but they talk a lot while they play games together. It turns out Sam is a bit addicted to one particular game. Duffy wants to do fun things IRL (in real life) and get some holiday reading in, but Sam is seriously lacking books. In his boredom, Duffy starts to play with mysterious family heirlooms and gets sucked right into the game! Duffy and Sam have to work together to battle creatures such as the Dismantler and the Puzzler to help Duffy escape the game before time runs out! They learn that reading and books are their only hope
