“Out of the gate and off for a walk, went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.”

Anyone with young children will recognise these immortal words instantly as the opening lines of the book Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy by Lynley Dodd.

Featuring many of the characters from the books like Hercules Morse, as big as a Horse – Bottomley Potts, covered in spots – Schnitzel von Krumm, with the very low tum and Scarface Claw – the toughest tomcat in town.

With music, singing and several of your favourite Hairy Maclary stories, this show is a must for the whole family.

“…a vibrant, fun filled show that cleverly brings Lynley Dodd’s much-loved children’s books to life.”Primary Times
