24 Aug 2021 to 25 Aug 2021 Once Only Event
Riverside Theatres will present the Helpmann Award-winning performance Robot Song by Arena Theatre Company on 24 and 25 August 2021. Full of hope, cutting edge digital technology, animatronics and a beautiful, original musical score, this poignant and compelling production is for any child who has ever felt isolated or pushed to the margins.
When eleven-year-old Juniper May receives a petition signed by her entire class stating that she is ‘the most hated person in the school’ her life is thrown into a complete meltdown. Finally, after exhausting all other avenues her parents resort to the only thing they have left, a giant singing robot.
Based on a true story, Robot Song illustrates the profound, transformative nature of creativity that when combined with unconditional love, becomes an unstoppable force. For Juniper, it opens doors into places she never knew existed allowing her to be defined on her own terms for the first time.
This deeply personal story shares an honest, intensely funny and often unconventional window into writer/director Jolyon James’ (Arena Theatre Company’s Trapper and Cautionary Tales for Children) experience parenting a child on the Autism Spectrum. Robot Song is suitable for ages 8 – 12 and their families.
Tickets: Adults $35, Concession $31, 30 & Under $28, 18 & Under $25. Groups +8 $31, Students/ Teachers $22.
