Wacky Wombat Musical Melbourne
The Wacky Wombat is an original family musical written by Emma Austin (Telling Tales) and Anthony Craig (Alice in Wonderland), featuring songs by award winning children’s Youtubers, Story Surprise.
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 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.
Melbourne Shakespeare Company aims to make the magic and excitement of live theatre accessible to all families by offering pay-what-you-can tickets for the production.
This allows audience members to either grab a ticket for free or donate to the company as payment for their afternoon’s entertainment, aiming to reduce the financial barriers stopping many families accessing high-quality theatre.
Wacky Wombat Review
The Wacky Wombat is open in Central Park, Malvern and is recommended for kids, families, and kids at-heart.
Mums Little Explorers was lucky to experience The Wacky Wombat on the March long weekend in Melbourne.
Pack a rug, a picnic and enjoy this high energy 50-minute performance with a storyline that makes a great day out for the family.
The performers involved the audience throughout while the kids were fully engaged – some were even selected to participate in some song and dance.
They loved the songs and were dancing on their feet with plenty of jokes aimed for those with a few more years under their belt..
Street parking was simple, free and just meters from the performance, there was also a playground close by for the kids to burn some energy after the show.
So, join Alex and the Wacky Wombat as they venture through your favourite stories, all in a sixty-minute whirlwind adventure.
