pinocchio and puppetsBig Monkey Theatre’s 2016 season of ‘Pinocchio’ is over. We’ve bumped out of the botanical gardens and managed to fit all the props, costumes, sets and stages into storage! The cast and crew have enjoyed a few days off and a sleep in or two. And the team are already making plans for the next production – ALICE IN WONDERLAND!! Keep an eye out for an announcement about dates for the school and public seasons.
Many thanks to all who came to see ‘Pinocchio’ – our friends, our regulars who come to see us year after year, and our newcomers. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at ‘ALICE IN WONDERLAND’!

PINOCCHIO – Tickets on sale now!

November 28th, 2015

Big Monkey Thepinocchio photo with background thumbnailatre’s shows in the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens have established themselves as a family favourite on Tasmania’s summer entertainment calendar. This summer we are proud to present our 22nd family show – Pinocchio.

Pinocchio is a cheeky wooden puppet who wants to have fun and live life to the full, but most of all he wants to be a real boy. As he sets out to fulfil his dream he is soon tricked and led astray, then forced to learn life’s lessons the hard way.

This is a timeless tale of adventure, mischief, hope and magic told with all the usual Big Monkey brilliance of song, dance, audience participation and loads of fun set in the magnificent Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. It’s a vibrant journey of the imagination where anything is possible and trouble is just around the corner.

The public season runs from Wednesday 30th December 2015 until Sunday 24th January 2016. There are no performances on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Dates and Times: Wednesday to Friday at 11:00am / Saturday at 2:00pm & 5:00pm / Sunday at 2:00pm

Prices: Adults $25 / Concession $18 / Children (4-14years) $12 / Children (3 & under) FREE
