DRESSING up for a night at the theatre is usually the done thing, but theatre-goers will be dressing down on Monday night in Warrnambool.
As part of a family-friendly performance of Pete The Sheep, the Lighthouse Theatre is encouraging people young and old to attend in their pyjamas, onesies or snuggies.
Lighthouse Theatre manager Greg Diamantis said the pyjama theme was a way of enticing families to the theatre, particularly children.
“We are keen to make theatre-going exciting and fun for our youngest audience members and easy for their families,” Diamantis said.
“The pyjama performance means the kids can see the show in a onesie or PJs if they like and then go home all ready for bed.
“To get in the spirit some of our staff and ushers will also be wearing dressing gowns or onesies — including me!”
The performance begins at 6.30pm on Monday.
Pete The Sheep is based on the children’s book written by Jackie French and illustrated by Bruce Whatley, which tells the tale of the new shearer in town and his sheep-dog, which happens to be a sheep.
A cast of four from Monkey Baa Theatre Company brings to life all the characters.
The play runs for 50 minutes and is aimed at children aged four and up.
