Josephine Wants to Dance is a brand new Australian musical based on the hugely popular picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.  Brought to the stage by the team that created the award-winning Pete the Sheep, this hilarious new work by Monkey Baa Theatre Company brings to life a tale about a bush Kangaroo you’ll never forget.

Josephine loves to dance.  Her little brother, Joey, tells her that kangaroos don’t dance, they hop- but Josephine doesn’t care and continues to point her toes and leap through the air.  This is a delightfully funny tale that looks at the importance of believing in yourself and realising your dreams.

“As you read the story, you find yourself wanting to leap, twirl, sway and point your toes with Josephine… This book is irresistible.” Kid’s Book Review

Adapted for the stage by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge, Tim McGarry
