Josephine Wants to Dance - at The Joan
The lights dim, the orchestra begins, the curtains open and a brand new Australian musical specially for children, Josephine Wants to Dance - based on the hugely popular and delightful picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley - comes to life on the stage at The Joan April 27 for two shows only.
Create a memorable experience for your children as Josephine will spin, swirl and pirouette her way into young audiences’ hearts as she shares the importance of believing in yourself and realising your dreams.
In case you haven’t had a chance to read the book… Josephine is a kangaroo who loves to dance. Her little brother Joey tells her 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 is eager to be involved. As the ballet dancers prepare to perform, Josephine sneaks into town and watches the dancers rehearse for hours and hours and then she practices her spins, swirls, pirouettes and curtsies. She desperately wants to dance in a pink tutu and with silk ballet slippers. On the day of the first performance the ballet company finds themselves in trouble as the prima ballerina twists her ankle and the understudy gets a splinter in her toe. Josephine’s talents are called upon to help save the day…but can she do it. And more importantly does it matter that she is a kangaroo?
Josephine Wants to Dance performances are on Friday 27 April at 10am and 12noon. The 12 noon performance will also include AUSLAN signing.
The show is suitable for ages 4 – 9. Duration 45 minutes.
Plus, there is still time to save extra dollars by subscribing to see any three kids and family shows this year including, Josephine Wants to Dance, The 78-Storey Treehouse, Lah-Lah, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and more.
