Baba Yaga is a deliciously engaging show for children aged 7 to 12 years and families.

A hilarious, musical retelling of an old Russian folktale. Vaselina lives the quiet life, working as a receptionist  in a very tall apartment block. But all that changes when she is forced to confront the terrifying Baba Yaga who plays her music far too loudly and eats jellybeans with her mouth open.

This uproarious new show for children and families was created and is performed by a team of unique and celebrated artists from opposite ends of the globe –Scotland’s Shona Reppe (The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean), and Australia’s Christine Johnston (Fluff ) and Rosemary Myers (Girl Asleep).

A brand new show for young people, Baba Yaga was commissioned by Imaginate (Scotland) and Windmill Theatre Co (Australia) and is supported by the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
