Storm Boy

Playhouse QPAC

Colin Thiele’s much-loved coming-of-age story Storm Boy is being brought to magical life on the Brisbane stage in a not-to-be-missed show that will enchant audiences of all ages.

This landmark new production, featuring masterful puppetry by the acclaimed Dead Puppet Society, is the work of the creative forces who were behind Queensland Theatre hit shows Jasper Jones and The Wider Earth.  

The bittersweet tale is about young Storm Boy, who lives a simple yet free life on the coastal wilds of the South Australian Coorong,while combing the beaches with his reclusive father, Hideaway Tom.

During a long summer, he makes two friends who will take him from childhood into adulthood: the jester Fingerbone Bill, who teaches him about his country; and Mr Percival, an orphaned pelican who prepares Storm Boy for the wider world with a poignant lesson about love, loss and letting go
