As the name implies, this one is very random. This is a very unique show and that is because random words from the kids inspire the show each and every time. This wonderful and often quite silly show is on at Sydney's Opera House.

Every new word from the kids in the audience will start a new story and the performers on stage will then act on queue to sing, dance along and tell a story. As you can imagine this one is definitely limited only by your child's imagination.

Tickets start from $24.00 to $30.00
