Monkey Baa Theatre Company Presents Josephine Wants To Dance
- Mon Apr 16 - Tue Apr 24 2018
Monkey Baa Theatre Company, the award-winning theatre company for young people, presents the world premiere of Josephine Wants to Dance, a new Australian play based on the award winning picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.
This landmark Australian production will feature a hilarious musical score, stunning set and costumes, an extremely talented cast and choreography by Australian Ballet Company’s own Tim Harbour.
Audiences aged four and over will meet Josephine, a kangaroo – who loves to dance. Her little brother, Joey, tells her that 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 learns that there is another way to dance – ballet. She watches the dancers for hours and hours, and practices their moves at night… all alone.
On the day of the first performance the Ballet Company get into a bit of trouble and need an understudy to replace their Prima Ballerina. Who could dance the lead role? Who else could leap that high? 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?
The show stars Rebecca Hertherington (Heathers, Blue Heelers), Chloe Dallimore (The Producers, The Addams Family), Amanda Laing (Mr Stink, The Merchant of Venice) and Hayden Rogers (The Secret Garden, Rent).
