  • Horrible Harriet
    Location:
     Frankston Arts Centre
    Tuesday 26 September at 11am and 2pm
    Ages: Suitable for all ages

Horrible Harriet lives in the roof of her school and keeps teachers chained in the cellar to do her homework. Harriet and the other children don’t see eye to eye - but all Harriet really wants is a friend. When Athol Egghead lands in his hot air balloon, Harriet finally meets someone who understands her. Then Mr Chicken arrives to disrupt the whole show! Fortunately Horrible Harriet knows how to handle him... or does she?
