The Magic Toyshop is an enchanting classical ballet - the tale of toys magically brought to life, performed at Brisbane Powerhouse by the Brisbane City Youth Ballet.

Audiences young and old will be entralled with the story of a young gypsy girl, alone in the streets, who finds shelter in a toyshop.
