THE STINKY CHEESE MAN AND OTHER FAIRLY STUPID TALES

Tuesday 9 July – Saturday 3 August

Though the characters may be familiar, each of your favourite storybook fables is uproariously derailed in this adaptation of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s quintessential children’s book of fractured fairy tales.  Everything from “Chicken Little” to “The Gingerbread Man” gets a complete makeover.  Fun music and witty narration accompany the likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky cheese to go around!

Tuesday 9 July already SOLD OUT! Get in quick to not miss out!

VERY HAPPY CHILDREN WITH BRIGHT AND WONDERFUL FUTURES

Tuesday 9 July – Friday 2 August

Inspired by the 2018/2019 Climate Strike Movement and set against the backdrop of Australia’s 2020 Black Summer bushfires, Joshua Maxwell’s ‘Very Happy Children With Bright and Wonderful Futures’ blends art with activism, telling the stories of real youth activists in Australia, and around the world.

Her world is dying. His world is dying. Their world is dying. Our world is dying. On the steps of the Swedish Parliament, a young girl sits and looks at the stars while the world watches. On the other side of the world, another young girl, Izzy, is caught between a firestorm and a media storm – both of which threaten everything and everyone she knows. Do these girls have bright and wonderful futures or is the world a lost cause…
