Cautionary Tales for Children

Cautionary Tales for Children

Based on the verse by Hilaire Belloc

From the ever-curious minds of Arena Theatre Company, one of Australia’s most celebrated creators of theatre for young audiences, comes a new cabaret so sickly it’s sweet.

Cautionary Tales for Children re-imagines Belloc’s wonderful wordplay as a cabaret, starring the extraordinary Virginia Gay with original music by composer, Mark Jones. Created for audiences aged 7 and above this show is proof that learning lessons about good behaviour has never been quite so absurd and hilarious at the same time!

Starring Virginia Gay. Music by Mark Jones
