He’s soft and cuddly and he smiles a lot, and now he’s on his way to Geelong Performing Arts Centre.

If there ever was a pup to cheer Geelong youngsters up, it’s beloved children’s character Spot.

The world-famous puppy comes to life on stage in a show for the whole family, with songs and puzzles for children aged 18 months to seven, and their adults.

Puppeteers Kailah Cabanas (Helen/Jess), Enya Daly (Spot/Jake) and Christopher Vernon (Daddy, Sam/Joe) recreate the magic of the children’s book in the Spot’s latest adventure.

Spot and his friends are off to visit his dad on the farm and meet the farm animals.

But when they arrive, all the animals are lost. Can Spot and his friends find them all with a little help from the audience?

Spot, has been an integral part of early childhood since he first appeared in Eric Hill’s classic lift-the-flap storybook Where’s Spot? in 1980.

BBC commissioned TV show The Adventures of Spot based on the book in 1986 and the series was popular across the world for decades.

Spot comes to the Playhouse for two shows at midday and 2.30pm on Saturday (24 August).
