A MISCHIEVOUS & INVENTIVE

theatrical family show for 6 – 10 year olds

TOURING AUSTRALIA IN 2022

BOOK NOW

All around the world Roald Dahl’s words are disappearing, not only from books but children’s minds too! Now only a secret organisation known as the Ancient Guild of Tale Tenders can save the stories – and they need your help…

Especially made for ages 6 and up, the show develops both creative and literacy skills through performance, games and creative play, while exploring Roald Dahl’s extraordinary stories, including The BFG and The Twits along the way.
