Robot Song @ Theatre Works
Until 13 April
TWISK Review: Tough topic, amazing show. Musical theatre veteran Ashlea Pyke brings youthful charisma and vocal talent to the role of pre-teen Juniper who is struggling be accepted at school. Based on writer director Joylon James’ experience as a parent, this dynamic show unpacks the feeling of difference that some kids experience. There is a robot, there is a dumpster in the back yard, there are songs and clever animatronics that actually work. Phillip McInnes is great as Dad too. Robot Song sings.
