About Josephine Wants to Dance

The popular picture book by Jackie French and illustrator Bruce Whatley comes to life on stage in this brand new musical about a bush animal you will never forget.

Josephine is a kangaroo – who loves to dance. When a ballet troupe comes to the sleepy town of Shaggy Gully Josephine learns that there is another way to dance – ballet. However, on the day of the first performance, the ballet company is in trouble: the prima ballerina has twisted her ankle and the understudy has a splinter in her toe!

Who could dance the lead role? Who else could leap that high? Josephine’s talents are called upon to help save the day. Can she do it, and more importantly, does it matter that she’s a kangaroo?

Josephine Wants To Dance is a delightfully funny tale that looks at the importance of believing in yourself and realising your dreams.

  • Suitable for: Ages 4 to 9yrs and their families

Dates and Times:

  • Thursday 11 October 2018 at 2pm
  • Friday 12 October 2018 at 10am & 12:30pm (Relaxed Performance)
