Winter school holidays are best spent indoors, in this case joining in on the daydreams of young Audrey of the Outback, on stage at Sydney’s King Street Theatre, Newtown.
Presented by Eaton Gorge Theatre Company and EMU Productions, Audrey of the Outback is a tale about the life of a nine-year-old girl growing up on the outback in 1930s Australia. As she matures, Audrey’s keen imagination turns over the important and absurd things in life. For example, how many eggs can a chicken fit in its stomach at one time? And, is being a swagman lonelier than being a girl?
Audrey of the Outback is based on the award-winning children’s book by Christine Harris. It’s a charming story that appeals to family members of all ages, from the very young, to the young-at-heart.
Audrey of the Outback is showing from 27 June to 16 July, Monday to Friday at 10:30am and 1pm. On Saturdays there is a 1pm performance. Tickets are $20-$25. Check King Street Theatre’s website for more details.
