It’s a musical for all ages, the story of dog and cat, Stan and Mabel, off to find their neighbour, who’s gone to judge ‘The Best Orchestra in the World’ competition.

Little do they know, they’ll be forming an amazing animal orchestra of their own!

Join inspirational musicians Matthew Hunt (clarinet), Tim Horton (piano) and narrator Polly Ives for a Family Fun Friday event exploring the musical story Stan and Mabel by composer Paul Rissmann, based on the book by Jason Chapman and published by Templar.

The session includes songs, actions, mask making and a highly engaging performance with image projections from the book.
