Magic Beach


Every day, all day Tuesday 4 January to Friday 21 January


Starting from: $39

This summer, Alison Lester AM’s classic book comes to life on stage. 

Every year, an everyday family go on a beach holiday. But this isn't just any beach - it's Magic Beach, where everything you can imagine becomes real. But this year is different. 

As the eldest child begins to grow up, does she have to leave the magic behind? 

From the team behind The Gruffalo and The 91-Storey Treehouse, this new Australian adaptation from multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a celebration of the power of the imagination and the differences that make every child special.
