Josephine Wants to Dance – 2018

Josephine Wants to Dance

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 story about dreams, believing in yourself … and a dancing kangaroo

From the award-winning duo of Diary of a Wombat comes another hilarious tale of a bush animal you’ll 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 and she’s called to forget everything she’s ever thought possible to follow her dreams!

A hilarious musical comedy directed by the team that brought you Pete the Sheep!

Children’s theatre has never looked so good these April School Holidays. For more on what’s on in Darling Quarter during the holidays subscribe to our email here.
