The Australian premiere season of Koala Joe - The Musical by writer and director Markus Weber and composer Michael Summ comes to King Street Theatre this Summer.

This wonderful school holiday production follows the successful season of Jungle Book - The Musical in January 2016 and will run for a strictly limited season.

Koala Joe - The Musical will take audiences on a mystical journey driven by the spirit of the Dreamtime.

Joe, a boy from Australia, lives far away from home in a boarding school in Austria. He loves the Tyrolean Alps and his training to be a downhill skier, but he is desperately homesick. One night, a mysterious messenger from the Dreamtime visits Joe and tells him: - "I am Yalunda - daughter of the Great Mother Eingana who once created everything. I am the water, the rocks, and the trees. I am a bird, a koala, a kangaroo and an emu too. I am the ancient bow, Toon and the Boomerang. I'm Yalunda your sister and Yoola your brother too."

Yalunda tells Joe to fly like the wind if he wants to get back home. He tries but crashes into the Australiana section of a zoo in Europe. There he befriends Matilda the kangaroo, Cuddle the koala and Emu, the emu. They are also very homesick. With the help of Jasmine, the orphan zookeeper, they plan to escape from the zoo. But the Zoo Warden has other ideas! Who is Mr M, the Master and why does he want to catch Matilda? What does the Tunnel Spook have to say about all this? With courage and the help of Yalunda, will the new friends find their way home to Australia?

This vibrant and enchanting production is sure to delight children ages 5 and up.

Koala Joe - The Musical will play at King Street Theatre from the 16 to 28 January 2017; Monday to Friday at 10:30 am and 1pm and Saturday at 1pm only (no show on Australia Day or Sundays)
