Monday night?!

Yes, Monday night! We know a weeknight can be tricky, so here are our top six ways to make it happen!

  1. Come straight from work / school / kindy / ballet / karate – we’ll be open!
  2. Bath early or skip the bath altogether. (It’s going to be early spring. NO ONE WILL KNOW!)
  3. Feed the kids here – we’ll have child-friendly meals available from 4.30pm
  4. Watch the kids’ faces light up as they enjoy the show from 6pm – 6.45pm, you’ll be out of here by 7pm
  5. Pre-pack the kids’ PJs – if they fall asleep on the way home, just pop them into bed (bonus!)
  6. Have a glass of wine. You took your kids to the THEATRE on a WEEKNIGHT!

Come along and meet Mothball, the naughtiest wombat in Australia!

Tickets are just $22.50 each or $69 for a family of four and are selling fast! Book yours today and get to know this cheeky and mischievous marsupial!
