A shake & stir theatre co and QPAC production

Roald Dahl's George's Marvellous Medicine

Adapted for the stage by shake & stir theatre co

A marvellous experiment of epic proportions!

27 Apr – 28 Apr

Adapted from the much-loved book by Roald Dahl, George's Marvellous Medicine is a spectacular live show for the whole family.

On a good day, George can't stand his Grandma. She complains all the time, she's mean and she smells funny. On this particular day, Grandma is much more annoying than usual and George has had enough. Wanting to put an end to her constant nagging, he creates a special medicine, greater than any medicine in the history of the world. What he doesn't expect is that this medicine may actually work...

A brilliant team brings you a brand-new stage adaptation from the wacky mind of the World's No. 1 Storyteller. George's Marvellous Medicine is packed to the rafters with mischief, music, magic and mammoth laughs.

Recommended for ages 6+. Contains haze, smoke, strobe effects and loud music.
