A Cabaret So Sickly, It’s Sweet…


A lyrical, satirical cabaret, which may make you lose your head entirely!

Meet our dysfunctional musical troupe of four, who have travelled to our stage via a time machine. They’re on a mission to teach today’s rascally kids a thing or two about the importance of being well-behaved and are armed with Hilaire Belloc’s poems about wayward children and the outlandish fates that befall them.

Created for audiences aged 8+, Cautionary Tales for Children is proof that learning lessons about good behaviour can be rather absurd and utterly hilarious!

Cautionary Tales for Children premiered at the Fairfax Studio, Arts Centre Melbourne in 2012.

It was re-mounted in 2016 in a new version starring Virginia Gaye and directed by Jolyon James, enjoying a sold-out season at the Sydney Opera House.
