New Owner

National Tour of The Last Great Hunt’s New Owner has been CANCELLED due to COVID 19 lockdowns in NSW and VIC.


A story of love, loss and new beginnings.

From the creators of international smash hits, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer and It’s Dark Outside comes a sensitive new show for all ages about loss, friendship and new beginnings.

Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship - but Mabel is old, and Bart is young – and suddenly alone.

Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner takes us on a world of adventure through a dog’s eyes.

Nominated for Best Presentation for Children at the 2017 Helpmann Awards (Australia).

Winner of 2019 Dora Award in the division of Theatre For Young Audiences - Outstanding Production (Canada).

“Watts and Gray’s storytelling art is deceptively simple but executed with considerable sophistication… New Owner sits perfectly in the timeless tradition of storytelling for children, and the child in all of us.” - The West Australian

Recommended for 7+

Contains scenes of sadness and loss that may be upsetting for very small children.
