Wilbur the Optical Whale

Next date: Wednesday, 17 April 2024 | 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM

Wilbur the Optical Whale is a heartwarming, immersive, and accessible children’s production about friendship and celebrating difference.

Based on the book by Karen Lee Roberts, Wilbur the Optical Whale is an enchanting story set under the sea where children are taken on an immersive journey to engage with the environment around them.

Wilbur and Cecil are the best of friends. One day while playing hide and seaweed, they are set upon by the Starfish Meanie Gang! How do they get out of this one? Join Wilbur and Cecil to help them on their quest!

Using alternative storytelling methods including interactive media with integrated Auslan, circus, music, movement and spoken word, this heartwarming production delivers a strong anti-bullying message and promotes acceptance. This multiple award-winning show is a delight for the whole family.

Accessibility: All performances of Wilbur the Optical Whale feature integrated Auslan and the set includes quiet spaces as part of our relaxed performance mode. Social/Visual stories will be available in the foyer pre-show or can be sent out in advance (please just let us know when you book).  We invite & encourage all audience members to engage with the work on their own terms.

Wilbur the Optical Whale is a collaboration with Flipside Circus.
