Kids & Families 2017
With some of the best international and locally grown theatre for children, during school holidays and some weekends during terms The Joan will offer a colourful, high-energy line-up shows for kids of all ages- and there’s always plenty for their grown ups too!

In 2017, for the first time ever, The Joan is offering a subscription option, giving busy families big savings plus the benefit of forward planning. Families purchasing Subscription Packs will also become part of the Kids at The Joan Subscriber Club, meaning they’ll be first in the know when it comes to additional school holiday workshops that pop-up (and sell out fast!) throughout the year.

A Family Subscriber 3 Pack – $192 – is a great way to save. Get a family pass (four tickets, at least one adult) to whichever three shows (except Circus Oz) that you’d like to see. A great experiential present for the kids for Christmas from Santa or even the grandparents!

January: miniFEST
March: Horrible Harriet
April: Creature: A re-telling of Dot and the Kangaroo
May: Circus Oz – Model Citizens
July: The Wolf and Peter, Emily Loves to Bounce, Mr Stink
September: Grug & The Rainbow
