Wenonah Cardenas, Gwen Knox, Susie Quicke, Ninian Donald and Dale Kelly get warmed up for the Kimberley Tour.


It's been a long time coming, and now the wait is finally over. Staircase to the Moon - The Musical - is coming! The show will tour the Kimberley during the July school holidays. Dates are confirmed for Kunnunurra, Halls Creek, Fitzroy Crossing, Derby and Broome.

Puppet workshops are offered free to up to 15 children in each town - as long as they agree to be a part of the show. That's a win-win for the kids.

Based on the book by Bronwyn Houston, Staircase to the Moon is the adventure of a girl and her grandfather who sneak out at night to climb the staircase to the moon. They brave bloodthirsty mosquitoes, dive-bombing bats, giant boab trees and sinking mangrove mud before making it to the foot of the staircase.

Starring Wenonah Cardenas as Rosie, Susie Quicke as Mum, and Ninian Donald as Grandad the show is written and directed by Gwen Knox. Musical score by Lorre Coffin accompanied by Rob Pascoe. The show is choreographed by Dale Kelly

Based on a natural phenomenon occurring in Broome in Australia’s north west. As the full moon rises, it reflects across the mudflats creating the illusion of a staircase.

Staircase to the Moon promises to be a magical musical puppet show for all ages.
