Birds of a Feather, Explore Together!
Brewster is a rooster and Maggie is a 6 year old girl. Together they make a unique pair of friends: they’re both super inquisitive, they wear tap shoes but it’s their inimitable style of imagining what the answer is to their many questions is what makes them a team.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Whenever Brewster and Maggie‘s friends ponders a question such as; ‘If fish live in water, what do they like to drink?’ They hold hands, do a little tap dance and open their imaginations. Through creative thinking, they come up with many possible answers, always positively building upon everyone’s ideas. They’ll take young viewers on a journey of discovery in a way that will not only entertain, but will get their creative thinking caps on!
Brewster and Maggie live on Skerries Island. He lives in a quaint windmill just across the water from Maggie. She lives in a lighthouse on the rocky shores of the island’s harbour. And between them live all their animal friends like Brandon Badger in his stone castle, Helvetica Bullfrog by her reed-lined lily pond and Ginger Squirrel in the holly woods forest.
Their friends are always good at coming up with great questions like: Why do flies like stinky stuff so much? Or, where does wind come from and where’s it going in such a hurry? Brewster and Maggie love nothing more than exploring all the possible answers.
If you could sum up Brewster the Rooster in one word, it would be ‘really curious.’ Oh sorry, that’s two words but he REALLY is curious about the world around him. That’s probably one of the reasons why he and Maggie get along so well.
Across from Brewster on the edge of Skerries Harbour lives Maggie. She’s a 6 year-old girl who lives in a lighthouse with her parents. Like Brewster, she shares a great sense of wonderment about the world and how things work.
Carrick Rock Crab is a cool crab, a Rock Crab in fact and he’s also Brewster’s next door neighbour who likes to hang out at the old Music Shack. His dream is to one day become a great drummer for a rock band, like Ringo Starr.
Helvetica is a Bullfrog of high culture and loves to dance. She’ll dance in almost any style: modern, ballet and hip-hop. But because she is amphibious she is especially fond of dancing in Riverdance style: anything to get her nearer to the water.
Even though Hamish lives on a small island, he dreams of one day being a famous country western singer. He wanders around the island in a covered wagon. Brewster and Maggie love to visit him because he entertains them with his guitar as they enjoy a cosy campfire.
In the midst of a holly tree grove lives the glamorous Ginger Squirrel. When she grows up she aspires to become a star of the stage. And like most actresses she has a fanciful imagination, is full of drama and loves to wear gregarious costumes.
Brandon lives in a stone castle deep in the island’s pine forest. And like most badgers, he’s fond of digging holes. Besides playing the bagpipes, Brandon has a talent for finding things underground. When he grows up, he wants to be a famous archaeologist.
Brewster and Maggie can find the ever-squabbling Magpie Twins at the birdbaths. They’re lifeguards . They have a funny habit of finishing each other’s sentences. They’re personalities are inspired from a pair a celebrity pop twins.
