This event has probably been and gone!
Gornistoccle, Kvetchacolli, Schlamelmanella, Tukishtollitis and Scmoozlavitis! Whatever could these be!?! Just some real bad viruses that can give you the Sweezes.
The Snot-Gobbler is a magical, witty, linguistic, SLIME covered story encompassing the oft-avoided conversation about children and families coping with serious illness and loss. Gotten-Gitten Von Schnauzelburger is a man made miserable by the grief of having lost the love of his life, Mary. His sadness is so great that he begins to find the joy and laughter of others, especially children, unbearable. With the unwitting help of the son he created, Robot Boy, Gotten-Gitten turns his intelligence to making viruses that produce large amounts of snot so that his Snot-Gobbler can then wipe the smiles off children's faces.
One day Gotten-Gitten and the Snot-Gobbler wipe the smile from Jasper Petal, brother of Rosie. But he has chosen the wrong family this time. Rosie is tough and determined. Aided by her sidekick Tarantula (an old, wise spider), Rosie goes on a quest to save the world from an excess of slime and misery and find her brothers lost smile…
Created by Nicci Reuben and Ross Goffin, playing as part of Te Pou’s 2017 Rangatahi Season, THE SNOT-GOBBLER is a darkly imaginative children’s show where you can expect ooldles of snot and sloppy, gloop covered fun and comedy.
