Family Fun at the Theatre
While there are plenty of musicals on offer for adults like Kinky Boots, We Will Rock You, and The Book of Mormon, theatre productions for children are harder to come by. But that is not the case this year, with Melbourne theatres offering a variety of classic shows for the whole family to enjoy.

Matilda The Musical

Revoltingly brilliant, Matilda The Musical is the show of the year, for children and adults alike. A classic Roald Dahl tale brought to life with a dash of naughty music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. The children in this production are multi-talented gems and Miss Trunchbull, played by James Millar, is a stand-out. After a sellout season in Sydney, Melbourne is in for a treat—don't miss it.



Playing for a limited season at the Princess Theatre—tickets available from Ticketmaster through to September.

The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music


The beloved classic about the nanny Maria and the Von Trapp family is coming to the Regent Theatre in May. With an all star cast including Cameron Daddo, Marina Prior, and Amy Lehpamer, a timeless score, and a story full of life lessons, this musical is sure to be a family favourite.

Singin' in the Rain

A much-loved musical about a musical, Singin' in the Rain, opens at Her Majesty's Theatre in Melbourne from May 7 starring Adam Garcia. Complete with a "Splash Zone", it is sure to delight children and adults alike.
