2019 Duffy Theatre

 

Every year, two groups of travelling actors journey from North Cape to Bluff bringing the message It's Cool to Read and Cool to Achieve to tens of thousands of Duffy kids. With over 500 schools to reach each year this exciting live 45-minute show has become a Duffy institution and a highlight of many school calendars. In August 2019, our school were paid a visit from Team Red of the Duffy Theatre and enjoyed the story of Duffy, Stuck in the Game.

It is the school holidays and Duffy is off to spend the break with his cousin Sam and Aunty Grace. Sam and Duffy don’t get to see each other much, as they live in different cities, but they talk a lot while they play games together. It turns out Sam is a bit addicted to one particular game. Duffy wants to do fun things IRL (in real life) and get some holiday reading in, but Sam is seriously lacking books. In his boredom, Duffy starts to play with mysterious family heirlooms and gets sucked right into the game! Duffy and Sam have to work together to battle creatures such as the Dismantler and the Puzzler to help Duffy escape the game before time runs out! They learn that reading and books are their only hope
