Climate Change Theatre
“Check out this new children’s musical on climate change “Where will all the penguins go??” at this year’s Sydney Fringe Festival – on 20, 21, 22 Sept, 2018 at the Bondi Pavilion Theatre.
This is a children’s musical performed by and created for kids (and adults) with the underlying theme of climate change. It’s an adventure filled journey story of two brothers set over 50 years. A story of love and loss, ego and redemption.”
