The Wacky Wombat

NEW FAMILY MUSICAL

Central Park, Malvern

25 Feb - 12 March 2023

The Wacky Wombat is a hilarious new family musical that follows Alex as he goes on an epic adventure inside his new story book on a once in a lifetime quest to try and find the world-famous Wacky Wombat!

 

With twists, turns, and a little bit of magic, the Wacky Wombat will take audiences on a wild ride through classics tales like the Tortoise and the Hare, Tiddalick the Frog, and the Seal Catcher, teaching Alex and the audience some very important lessons along the way. In our classic Melbourne Shakespeare Company style, audiences can also expect larger than life characters, beautiful choreography, and toe-tapping sing-a-longs as they take the park this March.

 

We want to make the magic and excitement of live theatre accessible to all families by offering pay-what-you-can tickets for this production. This allows audience members to either grab a ticket for free or make a donation to the company as payment for their afternoons entertainment, aiming to reduce the financial barriers stopping many families accessing high-quality theatre.

 

The Wacky Wombat opens on the 4th of March in Central Park, Malvern and is recommended for kids, families, and kids at-heart. So join Alex and the Wacky Wombat as they venture through your favourite stories, all in a sixty-minute whirlwind adventure. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket or a foldable chair to sit on and protective sun-wear is also advised.
