July School Holidays Announced at The Sydney Opera House

Roald Dahl's devilishly disgusting tale The Twits, Flying Fruit Fly Circus' musical variety show Tempo and Creation Creation, a playful new theatre performance exploring life's biggest mysteries, will inspire and entertain audiences these July school holidays as part of the Sydney Opera House's 2022 Children, Families and Creative Learning program.

From Shake & Stir Theatre Co, the team who brought us Fantastic Mr Fox, The Twits is a visually-spectacular, revoltingly-funny production that offers big belly laughs for children and adults alike. Based on the iconic book by Roald Dahl, prepare to be delightfully disgusted by this family classic from the wacky mind of the world's no. 1 storyteller, live on stage.

Creation Creation is a comedic form of documentary theatre about life's biggest mysteries. Created by acclaimed children's theatre company Windmill Theatre (Bluey's Big Play), Creation Creation is a hilarious and insightful way for kids and adults to explore the BIG questions - like "is there other life in the universe?" And "how did the world begin?" Two fearless creators step onto the stage and attempt to unravel the mysteries of the universe using their creativity. Blankets become forts, cardboard boxes become battleships and ping pong balls become planets in this hilarious explosion of art, sculpture, and puppetry. There are also exclusive schools performances on Wednesday 29-30 June.

Tempo is the new show from the Flying Fruit Fly Circus, Australia's national youth circus. Young audiences will be inspired by an ensemble of young performers aged 11 -18 years who will flip, juggle, balance, and dive their way into your hearts. The show follows a highly distinguished musician who has arrived to conduct their latest symphony, but the orchestra is nowhere to be found! Fortunately, the Flying Fruit Fly Circus kids are ready to come to the rescue. An "Inside the Circus" add-on VIP experience takes audiences on a backstage journey into the lives of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus.
