Creature – A retelling of the Australian classic, Dot and the Kangaroo at The Joan in Penrith this April during the Autumn school holidays.

Written by Ethel C Pedley, Creature is a new indoor theatre work for children that will combine physical theatre, interactive digital technology and storytelling in both show and interactive play-space.

A retelling of the 1899 Australian classic Dot and the Kangaroo, Creature invites you to enter the magical world of the Australian bush to explore how our actions affect the animals.

Five-year-old Dot is lost in the bush and is rescued by a kangaroo. The kangaroo  gives Dot magical “berries of understanding” and she can immediately comprehend the language of all the animals and insects around her. It is a revelation to her. It forever changes the way she views the Australian bush.  Dot and the Kangaroo then set out on an action packed four day journey to return Dot to her homestead.

Where:    Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, 597 High Street, Penrith

For the first time ever, The Joan is offering a subscription option, giving families big savings. Subscription Packs will also become part of the Kids at The Joan Subscriber Club, meaning they’ll be first in the know when it comes to additional school holiday workshops that pop-up (and sell out fast!) throughout the year.

A Family Subscriber 3 Pack – $192 – is a great way to save.  Get a family pass (four tickets, at least one adult) to whichever three shows (except Circus Oz) that you’d like to see.
