THIS EVENT IS NOW IN THE PAST. FOR MORE GREAT THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN AND AROUND BRISBANE, PLEASE HEAD TO OUR WHAT'S ON PAGE HERE

A heartfelt, clever and funny new tale based on two beloved Australian children’s books, Edward the Emu and Edwina the Emu, will come to magical life on stage at Brisbane Powerhouse this school holiday on June 29 and 30, 2022. 

Edward the Emu, Brisbane Powerhouse

Featuring exceptional world-class puppetry, a beautiful original score and inventive storytelling, the award-winning Monkey Baa team are back with this hilarious and tender story of two emus searching for their identity.

Edward the Emu, Brisbane Powerhouse

Edward and Edwina both wonder if there is more to life than being an emu. Perhaps being a seal, or a lion, or a snake is more exciting than an emu’s lot in life. Convinced the grass is greener in everyone else’s enclosure, the pair set out on an adventure to find their place in the world.

Edward the Emu, Brisbane Powerhouse

Follow Edward and Edwina as they hilariously navigate their own feathered existential crises, with their human keepers in hot pursuit to restore order to the zoo.

Edward the Emu, Brisbane Powerhouse

The emus’ journey of hijinks and tenderness lead them to discover that the best thing you can be is… you!

This performance is recommended for ages 4-10 years and their families.

Nice to know - The 1pm performance on Thursday, June 30 is Auslan interpreted, proudly supported by the Dalwood-Wylie Foundation.
