“The year I turned eight, Mum and Dad took us on a trip around Australia. Luke, Billy and I missed school for the whole winter term.”

In Are We There Yet? you’ll join 8 year old Grace and her family on their adventurous and often funny expedition around Australia!

Following a successful national tour of Magic Beach in 2022, Alison Lester AM’s classic book comes to life on stage, with songs, fun, (and quokkas!) for children aged 3 and up.

This new adaptation from multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a celebration of family, love, and the diversity and beauty of Australia.

About the Workshop

The stage adaptation of Alison Lester’s Are We There Yet? is currently touring Australia.

In this interactive workshop, school groups can explore, play and ask questions of Liesel Badorrek, director of the show.

The workshop will include practical exercises to engage your class, and will be delivered straight to your classroom via Zoom.

Participating schools need to have at least read the book Are We There Yet? by Alison Lester.

This workshop will be of most relevance to school groups who have already seen the play, or school groups that are booked to see it.
