Ahoy! Come set sail with this charming show for children that explores the universal themes of love, adventure, harmony and acceptance. You might even meet a honey-hooked Sea Bear, an itty bitty Kitty and a punky Piggy Wig! On for two days only during the upcoming school holidays at Riverside Theatres Parramatta.

The Owl and the Pussycat is an enchanting and intimate theatrical experience for families, based on Edward Lear’s beloved childhood poem. Created by a national team of award-winning artists for children 4-10 years, be swept away in this all-new opera, featuring stunning vocals, interactive theatre, puppetry and a one-man-Puffin-band.

This interactive journey inspires, educates and enthralls by inviting children, alongside their families, carers and teachers, to participate in musical and multi-sensory ways to help the lovable couple reach their destination. Aboard a giant magical pea green boat, meet the pair’s colourful and eccentric new friends, as they’re brought to life on deck.
