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?

From the creative team that has enabled the youngest Aussies to experience the wonders of an incomprehensibly large treehouse from the mind of Andy Griffiths over the past few years, it is time to head to the beach! After being postponed due to the Brisbane lockdown events of January 2021, the live stage adaptation of Alison Lester AM’s picture book Magic Beach will be performed at the QUT Gardens Theatre next month.

This 55 minute production aimed at young audiences, will be performed during a limited season from 7 to 10 April 2021, across a total of eight sessions. This Australian adaptation comes from playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer, and is the first of Lester’s iconic picture books to be adapted to the stage. This is pitched as a “a celebration of the power of the imagination and the differences that make every child special”.

Tickets can now be purchased via the QUT website. Tickets will be priced between $22.00 and $39.00, varying depending on ticket reserve and whether attendees are part of a Vacation Care group.
