After-show book signing

Steven Lee will be available after the show to sign copies of How The Koala Learnt To Hug and Other Australian Fairytales which will be on sale at a specially reduced rate.


Steven says: “The story is written from that family perspective of love and affection and sharing.  We always develop our shows to have that broad, ‘Disney’ appeal, so while children love it, there is also going to be something enjoyable there for the adults as well. 

“It’s all about creating work that families can enjoy together. We aim to make our work affordable and accessible so we are particularly pleased to be able to offer a signed copy of our book in theatres at a special low rate.  Hopefully, this way, families can enjoy more warm hugs when they get home!”

Steven runs The People's Theatre Company and is author of children's favourites The Witch's Bogey and Bink And The Hairy Fairy.
