A magical spin on a classic tale.
A musical for the whole family


Spinning straw into gold is a party trick that will take you far. It can buy you a big house full of beautiful things, a wardrobe of designer clothes and a life of total luxury. But money, as they say, can’t buy you everything.

This is the story of the ultimate price of greed, two people, once best friends, torn apart by desire for the things they cannot have.
The exquisitely mercurial Paul Capsis stars as a shape-shifting goblin whose thirst for vengeance may well bring him undone.

He joins the creative team that spun theatrical gold with the Helpmann Award winning ‘Pinocchio’, which took New York by storm after rocking Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

Now, Rosemary Myers, Julianne O’Brien, Jethro Woodward and Jonathon Oxlade take on a new and equally fantastic fairytale, with their unique brand of the theatrical spectacular; pumping music, extravagant performance and surreally supreme silliness.

This tale is one packed with mesmerising characters and a universal, resonant message of love trumping hate.
