Watch Shaun Tan’s illustrations come to life in a musical theatre production

Based on Shaun Tan’s award winning picture book The Red Tree, the National Theatre of Parramatta is reimagining the story for the stage. Following the life of a lonely young girl learning to conquer her fears and anxieties, The Red Tree narrates her journey to embrace happiness and take control of the world around her. The musical has been created by award winning playwright Hilary Bell and award winning composer Greta Gertler Gold, who has created a production that fuses pop, classical and traditional musical theatre with sound design and digital recordings. The production is recommended for children aged eight and up.
