A beautiful theatre experience for the whole family in the July School Holidays.

The feel-good stage adaptation of Tim Baker’s gorgeous children’s book follows the tale of a young surfer on a magical underwater journey. Captured by a mermaid, the boy is led to the depths of the ocean to meet her marine friends – the whales.

Written by renowned Australian surf writer Tim Baker, and featuring stunning images by Ted Grambeau, this fun, elevating show has an eloquent environmental message for kids of all ages to absorb while soaking in all the magic of great children’s theatre!
