Puss In Boots

Performance Dates & Times

A pantomime written by James Barry

Join Harry the miller’s son and his best friend Puss – the smartest, cleverest cat that ever tasted cream – as they set off on the road to fame and fortune!

In the classic pantomime tradition, Puss in Boots is an ideal treat for a holiday outing this summer. It will captivate little ones and entertain the whole family. Journey with Harry and Puss through the dark woods, past the angry ogre in his castle, all the way to the King’s palace to meet Harry’s true love, beautiful Princess Lill.

This is a fun-filled and rousing modern take on this enduring musical quest, packed with hilarity and captivating tunes that will have children dancing and clapping in the aisles, and parents laughing along too.

Suitable for ages 4-11

Duration: Approximately 80 minutes including interval

What is a relaxed performance?

We will present a relaxed performance of Puss in Boots on Saturday 13 January at 10.30am. This is designed to provide a supportive experience for anyone who feels they would benefit from a more relaxed performance setting, including people on the autism spectrum and their families.

Some elements of the performance, such as light and sound, will be slightly adapted and the relaxed nature of the performance welcomes audience participation and aims to provide a non-judgemental space where everyone feels comfortable. Quiet spaces will also be available in the venue.

What is different?

Before the event:

  • We will provide a picture story to help you prepare for your visit. This will be available online here from early December.
  • We will accommodate special seating requests where possible. Please call our Box Office on 02 8256 2222 to book your tickets.

  • Additional signage will be displayed to help you find your way around more easily.
  • Extra staff will be on hand in the foyers and auditorium to provide support.
  • A Quiet Space will be set up in Function Room on Level 1 for anyone who would like somewhere quiet to go before the show, during the performance or at interval.
  • Doors to the auditorium will be opened slightly earlier, at least 45 minutes before the start of the show.  

During the performance:

  • Characters will introduce themselves on stage at the beginning of the show.
  • The lights and sounds in the performance will be modified slightly.
  • Audience participation is encouraged!
  • There will be a relaxed attitude to noise and movement during the concert so you don’t need to worry about sitting still or keeping silent.
