Friday July 7 at 10am & 2pm // The Arts Centre Gold Coast, The Space, 135 Bundall Rd, Surfers Paradise

This delightful production takes its audience on adventures that remind you what you’ve always loved about stories, and why they truly matter. White Rabbit Theatre Ensemble’s Pocketful of Pebbles is a reimagining of three lesser-known traditional folk and fairy tales, The Noon Witch, The Foundling Bird and The Water Nixie. This production, created collaboratively by the ensemble in consultation with Gold Coast children, explores the fear and the fun of storytelling and asks its audience to become the custodians of these important tales – tales that can only exist if they are shared, and that prove that every child can be the hero of their own story. It’s time to pass the torch.
