The Sydney Opera House has revealed a summer holiday line-up of treasured Australian classics: Alison Lesters Magic Beach and Ted Priors beloved Grug, the world premiere of feisty feline fantasia Scaredy Cat, and the return of onsite tours for children and their families. Families can make this summer count with Magic Beach (4 21 January), produced by kids theatre experts CDP (The Gruffalo and Treehouse series). Offering a quintessential Aussie summer experience for kids aged 3+, this wholesome adaptation by multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a feel-good celebration of the power of the imagination, bringing the book to life with text, song, light, shadow and movement.

Kids aged 5+ will love Scaredy Cat (6 22 January), a lionhearted tale about being brave together. Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the Helpmann Award-winning Terrapin Puppet Theatres latest offering follows a courageous little cat facing big responsibilities, tasked with hunting down three cunning rodents and doing her family proud all while terrified of mice. Kicking off the holiday season in December is Grug (8 21 December), a stunningly crafted production based on the much-loved book character.

This internationally-acclaimed Australian stage adaptation by Windmill Theatre Company (Blueys Big Play) sees the loveable Grug creatively solving everyday problems, demonstrating the benefits of sharing and environmental care.
