Featuring original pop bangers like “Different”, “Frown to Crown”, “Fruit Time” and the instant classic “My Chosen Family”, this day doof disco, high energy music concert and dance party is for children aged two to seven and their parents/ guardians and friends.

Sing along, jump around and learn Auslan inclusive dance moves.

It’s guaranteed to give you a rush and encourage you to come out of your shell.

But wait, there’s more…

Before the show you are invited to share in a treasure trove of crafts, choreography and costume making in the Atrium. Make your own unicorn-sque gymnastic ribbon, a glitter crown and your own colouring-in map for Play Date adventures. You can also spend some time learning our Auslan inclusive dance moves we will share all together during the show.
