|Premiere||25 January 1984|
|Venue||Outdoor Lawns, Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne|
|Season||25 - 26 January 1984|
SIDNEY SPIDER’S MUESLI BOWL was created by Handspan Theatre for the Arts Education Department at the Victorian Arts Centre in 1983, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
The play was presented on the Music Bowl Lawns as part the Fantasy at the Bowl Australia Day weekend and birthday celebrations, for children and families.
The comic text played with the characters of Miss Muffet, her Spider and her bowl of breakfast; and the imagery illustrated a metamorphic transformation to a ‘butterfly wing.’ It shape replicated of the sound shell roof of the venue in the background of the action.
With a comic script written by Tony Rickards, the work was performed by costume puppets, actors and stilt walkers.
