Stage Fright! | New Theatre

Great school holiday entertainment can be hard to come by but you will not go wrong with Stage Fright! playing at the New Theatre.  Stage Fright! was written by Richard Tulloch (The Book of Everything) almost 20 years ago based on the stories of Paul Jennings  (Round the Twist, Unreal!, Unbelievable!) and still stands the test of time.

Tulloch pulls together a selection of Jennings quirky tales  with an amusing story involving three school children trapped in a 'haunted' house.  The cast successfully take on multiple roles to bring the  stories of Jennings alive including Skeleton on the dunny, Lucky Lips and The Copy.

Stage Fright! isn't scary but will have the whole family (adults included) laughing out loud.  For me, the  afternoon brought back memories of going to the theatre when I was a child.  My kids and I enjoyed this show and we highly recommend it.
