​​Imagination and fun are hallmarks of our work, and the annual summer shows in the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are a highlight for locals and visitors alike. The ever-changing ensemble – which includes some of Hobart’s best actors – is supported by a strong production team working to the highest possible standards.

In a pantomime style developed over the past 27 years, the company has presented a range of original work and new adaptations of many classics, including: The Wind in the Willows, Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, Pinocchio and Aladdin.
