CDP Kids presents Magic Beach, a play by Finegan Kruckemeyer, based on the book by Alison Lester.
At our beach, at our magic beach...
Every year, an everyday family go on a beach holiday. This isn’t just any beach - it’s Magic Beach, where everything you can imagine becomes real. But this year is different. As the eldest child begins to grow up, does she have to leave the magic behind?
Alison Lester AM’s classic book comes to life on stage in a wonderful world of text, song, light, shadow and movement for children aged 3-8 and their adults.
From the team behind The Gruffalo and The 13, 26, 52, 78 and 91-Storey Treehouses, this new Australian adaptation from multi-award-winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a celebration of the power of the imagination and the differences that make every child special.
Alison Lester is one of Australia's most beloved children's authors, with such well-loved children’s books as: Are We There Yet?; Noni the Pony; The Tiny Star; Our Island and so many more.
