Join Josephine's Tutu-tastic adventure: A Tale of Dreams and Determination.
Based on the picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley. This delightful musical is a must see!
Josephine is a kangaroo who loves to dance. Her little brother, Joey, tells her kangaroos don't dance, they hop - but Josephine continues to point her toes and leap through the air.
When a ballet troupe comes to the sleepy town of Shaggy Gully, Josephine desperately wants to dance like the ballerinas in pink tutus and silk ballet shoes.
On the day of the first performance the Ballet Company is in trouble. The prima ballerina twists her ankle and the understudy has a splinter in her toe.Who can dance the lead role?
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?
