This isn’t just any beach... its Magic Beach!

Glasshouse Port Macquarie and CDP Kids presents

A play by Finegan Kruckemeyer,
based on the book by Alison Lester

Every year, an everyday family go on a beach holiday. This isn't just any beach - it’s Magic Beach, where everything you can imagine becomes real.

But this year is different. As the eldest child begins to grow up, does she have to leave the magic behind?

Alison Lester AM’s classic book comes to life on stage in a wonderful world of text, song, light, shadow and movement for children aged 3-8.

From the team behind The Gruffalo and The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- and 91-Storey Treehouses, this new Australian adaptation from multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a celebration of the power of the imagination and the differences that make every child special.
