2019 – Josephine Wants to Dance

for primary students


a monkey baa theatre company production

Josephine Wants to Dance is back by popular demand!

After a highly successful national tour in 2018, Josephine Wants to Dance returns to the Monkey Baa stage at Darling Harbour.

A story about dreams, believing in yourself… and a dancing kangaroo! Josephine Wants to Dance is a hilarious Australian musical based on the hugely popular picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley. This uplifting tale of a kangaroo’s dream to dance celebrates passion, tenacity and individuality.

Brought to you by the team who created the award-winning Pete the Sheep, this delightful work by Monkey Baa will be a joyous excursion, full of rich opportunities for your students to learn, imagine, dance and dream.
Do not miss it!

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

“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”.
