Betti & the Yeti

Family  /  Theatre / Victoria Theatre

This fantastical tale tells the story of young Betiswa (Betti), and how she overcomes her fears and befriends the lovable Yeti. Deep in the valleys of far-far away, nestled between monstrous mountains, lies the Village of Silver Trees. Known for its beautiful silver trees, the town’s happy spirit turns nasty when the trees begin to die. Having no one to blame, the townsfolk decide that the culprit responsible for their fading foliage is none other than the quiet Yeti living in the mountains. Only Betti believes otherwise, and together she and her nervous friend Peter set off to save the day. “Betti & the Yeti” is filled with non-stop action, music to make feet tap and sheer rollicking fun. But above all, there is at the heart of the play a poignant message. Yeti and Betti hopes that audiences will be encouraged to be accepting of those who are different and to learn that anyone can overcome their fears and achieve great things.
