This heart-warming play teaches you the value of everything and the price of nothing
What would it be like to have a billion dollars? It seems like winning life's lottery (perhaps literally!) would mean an end to any and all problems, but for 12-year-old Joe, mo money does mean mo problems.
Joe has everything a kid could want, including a golden underwater Ferrari (we assume just for show; he is 12, after all) and his very own cinema. But that does not mean his life is gilded. He has altercations with the school bully and has to make his peace with his dad's new girlfriend (no mean feat), as well as facing the scariest thing of all for a kid: the world's worst school canteen.
There is an Auslan-interpreted performance at noon on April 6 and a relaxed performance for those with stimulus sensitivities on April 10 at 11am.
Based on the heartwarming book by David Walliams, Billionaire Boy has been adapted for the stage by Maryam Master, who also wrote the play based on Walliams' Mr Stink. The show is appropriate for kids six and up.
