Round the Twist The Musical
Have you ever, ever felt like this? Round the Twist The Musical is coming to Brisbane!
The home-grown TV show that we cherished as children is coming to Queensland Theatre in 2024 with all the magic you remember (and that song you can’t forget!) in a brand-new Australian musical by Paul Hodge based on the seminal stories of much-loved children’s book author Paul Jennings.
In an old lighthouse, single dad Tony Twist and his kids Pete, Linda and Bronson are about to embark on a magical adventure to unravel a 100-year-old mystery and protect their home from the greedy Gribble family who want to turn their piece of paradise into an Aqua-World-Casino-Pizza-Parlour-Burger-Joint-Amusement-Park.
With the help of a haunted outhouse, a crystal ball, some friendly ghosts and smelly feet (up the pong!), this family might just have what it takes to save the day!
Whether you’re new to Round the Twist or a diehard fan (withoutmypants), this big-hearted musical filled with soaring song and jaw-dropping design is for everyone.
Captained by Director and Dramaturg Simon Phillips (Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical, Ladies in Black), Round The Twist The Musical is a quintessentially Australian joyous celebration of oddballs and misfits — where if you stand out then you’ll fit right in!
