Josephine Wants to Dance – 2019

Josephine Wants to Dance is back by popular demand!

Based on the book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley
Adapted by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry

After a highly successful national tour in 2018, Josephine Wants to Dance returns to the Monkey Baa stage at Darling Harbour. This hilarious Australian musical based on the book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley is brought to you by the team that created the award-winning Pete the Sheep. Josephine loves to dance. The emus show her how to point her toes. The eagles teach her how to soar to the music of the wind. Then the City Ballet comes to town and Josephine learns that there’s another way to dance. Ballet!

“Josephine Wants to Dance is a joy for the intended audience of 4-9 year olds but don’t let that suggested age range hold you back. All ages will find satisfaction in this performance where each element is outstanding and it all comes together to create a must-see show”.
