Magic Beach is coming to Brisbane this April!

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?

The majestic and much-loved production Magic Beach returns to Brisbane after a sell-out season at Brisbane Powerhouse in November. It will play a strictly limited season at QUT Gardens Theatre from 7 April 2021.



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.

This is the first of Alison Lester AM’s classic picture books to be adapted, and it comes to life on stage in a wonderful world of text, song, light, shadow and movement.

Lester has been delighting younger readers – and their parents – for more than 30 years with her beautiful, illustrated children’s picture books. She was the Children’s Laureate from 2011-2013 and was also one of the 5 Australian Legends of Children’s Literature that Australia Post featured on a Stamp.
