NIght Zoo

The Night Zoo celebrates the special connection between animals and humans and the joy animals bring into our lives!

The Night Zoo

Jamie lives in a concrete jungle, a fast-paced and busy city. From her window high above the city Jamie dreams of making friends with animals, but Mum and Dad won’t let her have a pet in the apartment.

Tonight, her dreams will take her on a one-of-a-kind visit to the zoo, where she discovers the remarkable joy an animal can bring into her life. The Night Zoo explores the special connection between humans and animals and the importance of caring for another living thing.

“Nothing is spared to bring together all parts of this enchanting piece of theatre. The Night Zoo reminds us that we are not alone, and we are all in need of a friend.”  Canberra Times
