By Richard Tulloch
Based on the stories of Paul Jennings
12 – 28 January 2012
Kick off 2012 with some (spooky) family holiday entertainment!
Paul Jennings’ delightful stories of the bizarre and the ridiculous have made him one of Australia’s most popular authors of children’s books.
Round the Twist saw them adapted for television. Now acclaimed playwright Richard Tulloch (Hating Alison Ashley – the play; Midnite) has turned them into an outrageous and hilarious theatrical adventure.
Stage Fright! brings together the quirkiest, funniest and most spine-tingling of Paul Jennings’ stories to create great family entertainment. It’s ideal for ages 7 – 13 and the perfect summer treat.
Before each matinee kids get the opportunity to discover the world behind the scenes, with a pre-show backstage tour and ‘meet-and-greet’ with the cast
