Josephine Wants To Dance

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

A Monkey Baa Theatre Company Production

Josephine Wants to Dance is a brand new Australian musical based on the hugely popular picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.

Perfect for young audiences from 4 to 9 years and their families, and brought to you by the team that created the award-winning Pete the Sheep, this hilarious new work by Monkey Baa brings to life a tale about a bush Kangaroo you’ll never forget!

Suitable for ages 4 – 9
Please note, our 12pm performance will be Auslan interpreted.

Duration 45 minutes.


We have a FREE activities workshop following each performance, providing kids with the opportunity to delve into the world of Josephine, a kangaroo from Shaggy Gully who simply loves to dance!

Teaching Artists from Monkey Baa Theatre will engage the young artists with a range of activities guaranteed to help develop their interest and confidence in drama, plus explore the beloved picture book in a new and exciting way!
