Little Green Road to Fairyland

A vintage Australian children’s book, long out of print, has been brought back to life through

a magical new composition and dance theatrework for this centrepiece event of QMF 2011.

















“The Little Green Road to Fairyland resonantly overflowed with passion, commitment and expertise. It’s cute, funny, sad, and insightful.

The members of the troupe tell the story clearly, cleverly, and passionately..  ..all the little touches so reminiscent of amateur, or under-funded touring theatre are beautifully carried out.

I loved this piece. I dearly hope it has an afterlife. I believe this could be one of those few festival pieces that could tour world festivals with the best the world has to offer for a very long run indeed.”

Flloyd Kennedy Critical Mass

  “This really was a fantastic gem of a surprise!. ..it’s a hilarious and brilliantly performed fairytale by the excellent cast of dancers and musicians. How do you describe a show that incorporates theatre, a live onstage chamber ensemble accompanied by a soprano, ballet, acrobatics, narration, shadow puppetry, dancing, physical comedy, fairies, and a squawking troll? You can’t, which is why you should go see it for yourself!

…judging from the abundance of smiles, laughter, and enthusiastic applause, both children and adults alike were mesmerised, entertained and enchanted for the entire performance.”
