Josephine is a kangaroo – who loves to dance. Her little brother, Joey, tells her that kangaroos don’t dance, they hop!

When a ballet troupe comes to town, Josephine sneaks in to watch them for hours and hours as they perfect their routine. She desperately wants to dance like the ballerinas in pink tutus and silk ballet shoes!

When the prima ballerina twists her ankle and the understudy has a splinter in her toe, who will dance the lead role?

A delightfully funny tale that looks at the importance of believing in yourself and realising your dreams.

From the winners of the 2017 Drover Award for Tour of the Year.

Presented by Rockhampton Regional Council as part of the 2018 See it Live Theatre Season. See more shows in the See It Live Theatre Season.
