Time: 6.00 pm

Venue: Queens Park Theatre

A story about dreams, believing in yourself ... and a dancing kangaroo.

Josephine is 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. As the ballet company prepares to perform, Josephine sneaks into town to peer through the window as the dancers rehearse, watching for hours and hours as they perfect their routine. Then Josephine goes home and practices all night, all alone, until she knows the dance by heart. She spun, she swirled and pirouetted dreams… and at the end she always curtsied. She desperately wanted to dance like the ballerinas in pink tutus and silk ballet shoes!

Written for the stage by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry based on the book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.
