This fast-moving, always surprising show is a celebration of the world's number one storyteller.

Seriously funny and frighteningly silly, The latest production from shake & stir theatre co is sure to delight and disgust in equal measures.

Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts is the perfect family entertainment especially for children 5 to 105

Workshop Opportunity

And just when you thought that was as good as it gets…Shake & Stir Theatre Co is also offering a free workshop opportunity for kids aged between 6 and 12 years old to be held after the first performance at 1pm.

Using Roald Dahl’s delightfully disgusting poems, students will have a chance to perform their very own version of these stories led by the actors in the show. The workshop will encourage cooperation, creative storytelling, bold physical and vocal character choices and will ignite each participant’s imagination in brave and ridiculous ways.

As bookings for this free workship are essential, those interested are encouraged to book.


"It’s a rock concert, a Hip Hop film clip, a fairytale, and a favourite book brought to vivid life, all rolled into one and all PG-Rated. Fun that the whole family will enjoy. And I mean THE WHOLE FAMILY. REALLY. These four performers are awesome, and the company already has a massive secondary school following so don’t think twice about booking the extra seats for the teens, they’ll love it!"

XS Entertainment
“Whatever you do, make your kids take you along to see this express-train of a show – and if you can’t – go on your own. It is billed as a show for kids of all ages, but on opening night there were more adults than tots and they laughed just as hard as the youngsters. In fact it was one long laugh session. I had a ball.” Absolute Theatre.

This project is supported by The Playing Queensland Fund and arTour, initiatives of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet.
