THE Phee Broadway Theatre will put on a fun performance for children and families in the new year.
Mark Penzak, Blue Boat Theatre and the Phee Broadway Theatre will present Jules Verne’s Journey To The Centre of the Earth on Sunday, January 5 at 2pm.
The event involves storytelling, mime, puppetry, miniature worlds inside suitcases, special umbrellas and an erupting volcano.
The story follows young Axel who accidentally discovers a tunnel that descends through an Icelandic volcano into the heart of the Earth.
His eccentric uncle Professor Lidenbrock immediately launches an expedition accompanied by Hans, a hugely powerful Icelandic giant and Gertrude, his intrepid duck.
Together they journey through claustrophobic caves and glittering caverns.
Tickets will be available at the door, $12 for children (2 years and over) and entry for accompanying adults is free of charge.
The Phee Broadway Theatre is located in Mechanics Lane in Castlemaine.
