Go on a journey with The Midnight Gang at the State Theatre of WA
By Cassie Hart, Editor - Kids in Perth 12 May 2021
Based on the hilarious novel written by David Walliams, The Midnight Gang stage show has been adapted by Maryam Master and will be gracing the stage of the State Theatre Centre of WA from June 18-20.
When twelve-year-old Tom unexpectedly finds himself in the children’s ward of St Crook's Hospital, it seems like he’ll never leave there. He feels lost and lonely being away from his parents, and to make matters worse he is at the mercy of evil Matron.
But his fellow young patients have other ideas. They might be stuck in hospital, but their imaginations can take them anywhere! Each night when the clock strikes midnight, The Midnight Gang go on a series of amazing journeys as they turn the hospital into the places they’ve always wanted to go and make dreams come true.
Presented by CDP Productions and produced by the team behind The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- and 91-Storey Treehouses, Mr Stink and Billionaire Boy, this heart-warming story is a celebration of friendship, love and the power of the imagination.
Note: this play is suitable for children 6+ and their families
